12 Days of Firemen - #Day 6

Good morning, and welcome to Day #6 of the 12 Days of Firemen! The winners of Day 5 are:

Kristy B. 

Marianne C. 

As a reminder, we'll take tomorrow off for Christmas, and be back in party mode on Thursday. So ... the question for today ... if you read my books, you know that I adore firemen, but I also love and respect the female members of the fire service. (Sabina Jones, you're my hero.) So the question for today is:

Who was the first known female fire chief in the U.S?

As always, research is allowed. Prizes will be awarded for one randomly selected correct answer and one creative. Have fun!

Today's prize is a fantastic calendar I just discovered: The 2014 Kittendales Calendar. Hunky guys + kittens = OMG. (Proceeds support the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue.) Since one of the hunky guys is a firefighter, I believe it qualifies for the 12 Days of Firemen. And since I'm making the rules here, it's in! The creative winner will receive a Bachelor Firemen gift pack.
You have until 10am EST tomorrow to leave your answer either here or on my Facebook page. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook.
Have a joyful Christmas Eve and a wonderful Christmas. I'll see you on Thursday!
