VIDEO: History has been made in League City! The city's volunteer fire department now has it's first-ever all-female day crew. A photo of the five women, seen posing in full gear, was posted on the department's Facebook page on Wednesday. "These ladies are proudly representing Stations 3, 4 and 6! Way to represent and make history ladies," read the post. According to the city's website, the League City Volunteer Fire Department is comprised of more than 120 volunteers. "I think we were all kind of itching to get that first run out of the way," said Johanna Kirkpatrick. Since the League City Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1938, there has never been a shift that was entirely staffed by an all-female crew. "It was great, we had a great time and we went, 'Woo!' and got to run some lights and sirens a little bit. Thankfully, everything was okay for both calls, but it was real neat to be in a truck and just the girls," said Kirkpatrick.
