Kat Robinson Williams is currently 14 weeks pregnant. But in the role of fire volunteer (firefighter), she is fighting bravely against the terrible fire spreading in the forests of Australia.
Williams says that many of his friends are worried about this and are also telling him not to do so.
She has written a post on Instagram and said that in such a situation she “cannot stand quietly behind.”
Robinson Williams has been associated with the New South Wales Rural Fire Service as a volunteer in fire extinguishers for the past 11 years.
She says, “I am not the first firefighter who is pregnant nor will I be the last. I am still in a situation where I am able to help others, so I will do it.”
The fire in Australia’s forests has killed three people so far and over 200 houses have been gutted.
“I don’t care what the world thinks”
Robinson Williams posted a post on Instagram on Monday in which he has also shared several pictures of himself wearing fire gear.
The post also wrote a caption, “Yes I am a fire worker. I am not a man. Yes, I am pregnant. I don’t care if you don’t like it.”
Her post received a lot of support from people, many of whom also described her as “an inspiration for all girls”.

Robinson Williams says, “It’s like a family tradition, we’ve always done it. My grandmother is still volunteering. She has done this for 50 years and my mother has done it for over 30 years.” Is doing.”
Her husband and in-laws also volunteer as firefighters.
