“We do different jobs on the daily and you’ve got to be able to work well with others. It’s all about teamwork!” she said.

When Belden isn’t climbing in and out of meter vaults, she still enjoys being around water in a different kind of way.

“In my spare time I like to go on trips. I like kayaking and spending time with my family,” she said.

“I’ve been a firefighter for 25 years and I love it. I enjoy helping people the best way I can.”
