the day or night. These circumstances especially affect women firefighters, two-
firefighter couples, and single parents. More than a third (36 percent) of women ...

bedspreads, and even stuffed animals given to them by their children. Instead of
closets, fire stations usually have a locker room where firefighters store their
cloches and ...
