Various shots of the ladies of the fire service marching - slow and fast. M/S mobile kitchen, a girl gets out of her truck and runs up to it. M/S of another lady writing on a board, recording which appliances have been dispatched to a fire. Good M/S of lady dispatch riders driving towards the camera on their motorcycles (Winifred Ashford
is the smallest). C/U as one hands over a message to the kitchen. M/S as the lady writes on the board. Various shots of a pump drill, the women take the hoses and train them on the fire before rolling them up again. M/S's as they drink tea and eat biscuits on their break.
