When Kitchener firefighters spring into action, Angela Inch has them covered – literally.

In her role as administrative assistant with the Kitchener Fire Department, Inch ensures that fire-resistant bunker gear is in top condition and other personal protective equipment is readily available.

They’re just some of the many duties Inch has undertaken in her two-decade career with the city.

“There’s a lot of opportunity to grow,” Inch said, reflecting on her work since starting as a part-time lifeguard while in high school. “I’ve been able to use the skills I’ve brought into the job and been able to build many new skills.”

That’s one of the things that makes the City of Kitchener a great place to work.
