Priya Ravichandran



In a world where women’s safety remains uncertain and their independence is threatened, here is one lady who knows no fear. She is the first woman officer to be recruited by the fire department and she has saved many lives while putting her own at risk. Working odd shifts and attending distress calls any time of the day, she just proved that this career is not only for men. Today, she is the Deputy Director of Fire Services of Tamil Nadu and she remains undaunted even after suffering forty five percent burns across her body during the rescue mission she led at KalasMahal. Profoundly committed to serving the nation, she steps out every day wearing her uniform with pride and fights fire with fire. She is an inspiration to many women who want to serve the nation in one way or another. A brave heart, she has won many awards for her courageous efforts including the Anna Medal for bravery and selfless courage, President’s Award for gallantry and the award for selfless service in search and rescue operation.
