Women in law enforcement, fire fighting, and corrections spend their days doing their best to keep our community safe. In this forum, women in these challenging careers will share their stories.

We'll hear about what drew them to choose their path, what it took to get there, and the effort and the rewards found in working in these strongly male-dominated fields. We'll learn about the compensation for doing this critical and often dangerous work, and the training and experience required.

With panelists Ingrid Jonas, a division commander (Major) in charge of the Support Services Division of the Vermont State Police; Raysa E Ortega, a former shift supervisor for the VT Department of Corrections; and Kathleen Lanphear, a firefighter with the Burlington Fire Department for 8 years.

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
