Interesting Fact

I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer in 2009, but had a successful operation and returned to work a year later and have since been promoted to Watch Manager.


“Growing up I faced challenges, but this can be a good thing – and every dead-end encountered has encouraged me to explore other avenues. The fire services has enabled me to develop throughout my career and reach my full potential – and working with a diverse range of people has shown me that despite challenges, anyone can succeed.”
