CBS 7 News
A Midland woman makes history for her role in the fire department.
Bernie Gonzalez is the second female firefighter in Midland's history to join the fire department.
The Arizona native said it all started when she was in elementary school and her class took a field trip to a fire station.
She came to midland to play college softball and then enrolled in the fire academy.
“Took awhile for it to sink in,” said Gonzalez, “it feels awesome.”
Gonzalez began her shift last month.
