A group of women in a remote Aboriginal community in South Australia's APY Lands have formed the state's first indigenous female fire-fighting team. For cultural reasons women in Mimili can't work with the men in the Country Fire Service brigade in the town. However with the men often out of community on cultural business and other help so far away the women decided to get trained up so they could protect themselves and their land.
