Let's give our women firefighters a big hand for their courage and dedication.

Not many women would have ever considered being a firefighter, but for Nor Maisarah Ibrahim, 27, and Siti Norhaliza Zakaria, 19, that has been their childhood dream.

The duo are with the Seremban 2 Fire and Rescue Department and pictures of them in action during a fire in Seremban recently went viral on social media.

They were both pleasantly surprised to see pictures of them in action all over social media and said they never expected it.

"We were just doing our job ... we never expected this," they said.

Though normally regarded as a man's job, they both take their daily challenges in their stride and persevere to do better.

Keep up the good work girls!
