The first mother and daughter duo are to serve as firefighters at the same time for London Fire Brigade.
At 22, Katie Holloway, has just joined Tooting Fire Station.
It is the same station her mother, station manager Sally Harper, was first posted to when she passed out as a firefighter back in 1988.
When Sally joined there were only seven serving women firefighters in the whole of London compared to over 300 across the capital.
The Brigade has changed a lot in 28 years.
Women firefighters were also a shock to the public, who at the time saw firefighting as a very male orientated job, London Fire Brigade said.
Katie has just completed her first full tour of duty and was thrown straight in at the deep end.
London Fire Commissioner Ron Dobson said: "I'm delighted that Katie has followed in her mother's footsteps and joined the London Fire Brigade.
"The achievement is extra special as it comes when we celebrate our 150th anniversary.
"Sally is a fantastic role model and has done so much to change attitudes towards women in the fire service.
"I wish Katie every success in her career and will be sad to see Sally retire later this year."
