Neurodiverse development: No limits leadership aspiration for women in the service

Lorna King


Features Editor Lorna King talks to West Midlands Fire Service’s Sam Burton about her roles as the Strategic Enabler for Operations (North) and Preparedness, Silver Commander for Fire for the Commonwealth Games and Project Executive for the UKRO Festival of Rescue 2022 and is inspired by an often fraught but ultimately uplifting journey.


It was Michelle Obama who said: “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish, whether that’s in politics or other fields.” Exactly one year ago, in FIRE’s June 2021 issue, FIRE explored some impressive examples in our article about breaking the Fire and Rescue Service glass ceiling and getting women to the top of their game. Although that glass ceiling does still seem to be stubbornly intact, it will be the continuous reporting of women who are treading a ground-breaking path through their Fire Service career that will create the cracks and inspire a younger generation to be the pioneers who eventually cause it to shatter altogether.
