Richmond Firefighter Breaks Barriers, Balancing Faith & Service – 8NEWS – WRIC | News Where You Live
It doesn’t take much for Muslim women to break down barriers. In the case of Kae Asima, a Richmond mom of two, all it took was a nomex hood that is flame retardant to act as her religious head covering for her to take up one of the most dangerous jobs in Virginia. Here, she talks with 8NEWS-WRIC about her choice of becoming a firefighter and how she balances her faith and service. Kudos to Richmond Fire Department for providing the religious accommodation.
