Press Release - Liam’s story as a wholetime firefighter
Posted on 18/03/2021

I am a frontline firefighter currently working at Station 60 USAR (Urban Search and Rescue). This involves being trained and ready for major national incidents such as large scale terror attacks, large fires and collapsed buildings.

We also provide support to local fire crews who require help from some of our specialist equipment.

As well as our USAR skills, we are also trained in rope rescue, swift water rescue and searching for high risk missing people. Lots to keep us all busy!

I joined Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service in 2006 and transferred to Devon and Somerset in 2013. Before this I worked for many years within my local community at a leisure centre. Here I performed gym inductions and was also a lifeguard and swimming teacher to people of all ages.

As a father to four children myself, I actively promote the merits of living in a multicultural society. The mixing and understanding of many different cultures, religions and beliefs is what makes the United Kingdom a truly special place to live.
