Yolimar Torres is the first Hispanic woman firefighter in the Springfield Fire Department. She is a unique case for various reasons, not only is she the first Latina firefighter in the Springfield Fire Department, she is also the only woman on a department of 260 firefighters. Not only did she join her father but her brother Eduardo Colón, who is also a Springfield firefighter.

Yolimar said she doesn't think of herself as a woman in the department. Yolimar prides herself in being different and wanted to do something that not all women set out to do. She is expected to do all of the things that the male firefighters can do regardless of her stature or gender and has definitely proven since joining the department that she is more than capable of doing so.
