About the event

Join us for our annual Keynote Presentation which has become one of the most  popular events on the Museum calendar! Videos will be uploaded to social media between 10am and 11am on our social media pages, or head over to www.museumoffire.net/history-week-2023 after 11am to watch the video in full.

The theme of History Week 2023 is “Voices from the Past”, with a focus on giving a voice to those who  have been underrepresented. As a museum our team spend most of their days researching into the past and sharing those stories, and this History Week we are pleased to be able to shine a light on the early story of women in NSW‘s Firefighting history. Join our CEO Belinda McMartin as she discusses the establishment of the Women's Fire Auxiliary in World War II. Followed by our special guest speaker Dr. Kristine Klugman OAM who was the first woman to sit on the Board of Fire Commissioners NSW and the first woman to formally undertake the  physical tests by new recruits.
