We could not be more excited to bring this trailblazing hero to Elk Grove in partnership with Cosumnes Fire Department! Bobbie Scopa spent close to five decades working through nearly every challenge a firefighter can face. She: *Was the strike team leader for the Dude Fire in 1990. *Served at Ground Zero immediately after 9/11. *Worked mountain rescues, city fires, mega-wildfires, and everything in between. *Received Firefighter of the Year (1990) from the Professional Firefighters of Arizona; Governor's Award, State of Arizona (1990); Certificate of Appreciation from the City of New York for work performed at the World Trade Center in 2001; and the Unit Citation Award for efficacy in the US Forest Service (2014). *Fought the narrative, “A hero firefighter can’t possibly be transgender." *Wrote Both Sides of the Fire Line, an uplifting memoir of bravely facing the heat of fierce challenges, professionally and personally.
