News Letter By Staff on December 31, 2020

Mrs McDowell transitioned gender while working within the fire service and helped promote greater acceptance of transgender people within the fire service.

She was made MBE for her services to the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and to the LGBTQ community.  Mrs McDowell, who is married with two children, said she was surprised to be included in the New Year Honours List.

I needed to end this year with some good news when this showed up.
