Firefighter Mindy Geer – City of Sebring First Female Firefighter
When Mindy Geer completed her certification from the State of Florida in December of 2012, she joined a select group of women. Nationally, less than 4% of firefighters are women. When she began her fire service career for the City of Sebring Fire Department, she became the first female firefighter there. She attributes so much of who she is today to her unbelievable supportive family and being raised to believe that she could do anything she put her mind to. Although she loves the career path she is on, it was not the path she started on.
