I have recently retired after 25 years in the Health Care sector, including Cleveland Ambulance service, the local hospital and 4 Nursing homes.
At 60 years of age and a former HST intercity instructor train driver, who regularly plays walking football with full time fire officers; I'm already part of the team, so to speak. But I'd like to help my teammates and my community in trying to keep everyone safe. As a retiree I'm available all the time and it's a great way to learn some new skills.

I have been with Cleveland Fire Support Network for a number of years now, In a volunteering role and as a member of paid staff. I have found that volunteering has helped me greatly to achieve my goals in gaining employment and now moving on to further education within University. The Network is a great little family and I have gained friends that I will always keep in touch with in the future. The work that the Network do in the community is fantastic, providing fire safety to everyone in our local area. If you are thinking of volunteering then the Network would be a great place for you to start and I would like to personally thank everyone for their great guidance and help I have received in the time that I have been here.
We were very impressed by the service we were given when our 'hearing impaired' smoke alarms were fitted. Competent and cheerful. We were amazed to discover that they were volunteers. Very many thanks.
