I joined Greater Manchester FRS in 1975 and served has a firefighter for thirty three years, becoming a member of Operation Florian in 2005. I became a member of the board eight years ago serving as our vehicles officer since then.
During this time I have been active in fundraising and in the sourcing and collection of vehicles and equipment.
I have been involved in various overseas projects in Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Zimbabwe, acting as convoy leader on a number of occasions whilst delivering vehicles to the Balkans. I have also acted as a Regional Coordinator in Macedonia.
