Favourite part of my job
I really enjoy drill night. It’s an opportunity to maintain your skills but catch up with the watch and have a good laugh along the way. The aspect of helping the community and making a difference goes without saying I suppose.
Hobbies and interests
I’m a keen cyclist and also enjoy fishing when I get the time.
I’ve never rescued a cat from a tree!
"To be an on-call firefighter you need to be really organised and forward plan. There is flexibility within the system to allow you to book off to pursue hobbies, spend time with the family; you just need to plan ahead so the station can manage availability. It is a good excuse sometimes to get out of doing the weekly shopping trip!
Visit your local station and talk to the crews to get a really good understanding about what’s involved; what the benefits are, but also what the role will expect from you."
