Dina Jones and Dana Bokobza were selected as the first women to be part of a commander course in Israel’s Fire Services.

“Dina is an amazing firefighter, with a lot of courage and ability to act under pressure. There aren’t many like her, even among her male colleagues,” said the chairman of the Israeli Professional Firefighters’ Organization, Yoav Gadasi.

“I’m already used to people looking at me in astonishment,” said Bokobza. “But I’m the proof that everything’s possible. I love my job, and for me to break through the flames is an instinct. I don’t even think about the dangers involved.”
