I joined the national Firefighters team in 2004 and gained a silver medal at world firefighter games the same year held in Sheffield. I took control of the UK Firefighters team in 2007 and entered the 2008 world fire and police games in Liverpool gaining another silver. I then took the team to New York for the 2011 World fire and police games where we finished outside of the medal spaces, but won a few games against tough opposition on the way.
I have been a full-time Firefighter for 8 years. Previously I had served in the British army for 15 years. Part of my role as a firefighter is being water rescue level 4 operator and advanced medic. The aspects of my job I love are; every day is different, being part of a team and helping people.
