The fire service is not a weak job. Just ask Kody Gibson and Sydney Brown, the City of Greenwood’s newest firefighters. “And that’s not just for females, it’s for anybody. Anybody can struggle in this job. It comes down to your mindset and technique. You have to want this job and put in the work for it,” Gibson said. Gibson is no stranger to the fire service. Before joining the City of Greenwood Fire Department, she spent about four years with the City of Newberry Fire Department. “My family is very heavily involved in first responders. We have respiratory therapists, nurses in our family. My dad was a volunteer firefighter. Me and my siblings had just joined the Explorer group that Newberry offered and it kind of just sparked my interest from there,” she said.
