Rochelle 'Rocky' Jones; Photo - NewsdayThe first female battalion chief for the New York City Fire Department, Rochelle "Rocky" Jones, was sworn in yesterday. The Times reports that of 11,000 firefighters, only 22 are women. Jones, along with 40 other women, had sued the Fire Department in the 80s to gain employment there. Newsday said that when Jones was asked if she had concerns that it took a court order to let her into the deparment, she "replied tersely: 'We're not going there.'"

Look at what the Sacramento Fire Department says is required of females interested in being firefights.
