Be a Firefighter like Michelle!

24/08/2015 14:00
There are many reasons why we think you should join the fire and rescue service and we have asked some of our female firefighters to tell you why! 

“Since I’ve joined the Fire and Rescue Service I have realised there have been female firefighters in fire stations in Mid and West Wales, and across the UK for many years now - but it’s a career that many women just don’t think about.”

 “I worked as a waitress for years and work was a bit surprised when I told them I wanted to be an on-call firefighter, but they were really supportive, allowing me to drop everything when a call-out comes.”  

“Being a firefighter has really boosted my confidence and helped me develop my people and teamwork skills.”

“It’s a hugely rewarding job – I can’t think of anything else I’d like to do.  I feel part of the community, and my family are so proud.  

My 6 year old son can’t stop telling people wherever we go ‘My mum’s a firefighter!’”

On – call Firefighter Michelle Thomas, Llandeilo Fire Station.


Find out if you have what it takes by attending one of our female awareness days at: Haverfordwest, Llandrindod Wells and Llanelli Fire Stations during September.
