Kim's story

             

Joining the service as an on call firefighter offers a wealth of opportunity to work for the service on a part time basis. It is an exciting and hugely rewarding job where you'll become a crucial member of a highly trained and tight-knit team.

Beginning of the journey

After years of drumming into my kids 'you can be whatever you want to be', I actually started to believe it myself...

So my journey began... with our kids aged just seven, six, four and a six month old, I decided to follow my dream.

I took every spare hour I had to train as I wanted to be physically and physiologically prepared to reach my goal.

Dream became a reality

With the support from my family I never looked back; my children are now growing up and doing well. I am where I want to be, doing a job that I love. I can't tell you enough of the pride and passion I have for this service and the role it plays in our communities. I walk away from the smallest of jobs with the greatest of satisfaction.

The fire service has so much to offer, my goals are forever changing, there is still so much more I want to achieve.

"Keep your dreams in sight and believe in yourself. Aspire to be who you want to be".
