About Me

Hi, and many thanks for finding the time out to have a look at my blog.

I guess that I should really get started by telling you a few things about me, so here goes;

I'm a budding cyclist, and also have taken part in the London to South Hampton cycle event on various occasions (although I usually end up closer to the rear of the pack, than the front!), and I also enjoy going swimming at my community leisure centre club.

When I get time I also like to play tennis, go fishing and unwind by the river, or occasionally simply relax in front of the TV and enjoy watching the football.

I also find it extremely relaxing to paint and sketch, which is something new to me, but I am really starting to get into it!

I'm also a fire safety enthusiast, am a member of the fire brigade historic society, and have a love for old, new, vintage, actually, any and all fire engines.

Lately I've visited many different countries across the world to see fire service related equipment at exhibitions and have also became acquainted with a number of fantastic people who have showed me a great deal.

I used to be a fire officer in an airport fire service in Kent, and really enjoyed the job, the training that we received, and generally hanging around with the lads on the station. I learned a lot in this particular job, and subsequently took a level 3 fire safety course to help cement and strengthen my practical knowledge.

My intention with this weblog is to meet up with a few new buddies, and also share some of my practical knowledge and experiences with you.

I am going to be writing about the latest fire safety incidents, sharing some useful tips and information, and including a number of exciting photographs and videos.

Anyhow, thanks again for looking over my website, and I hope that you will find it entertaining!
