Local Fire Station: Sawston

I worked in the NHS as an Emergency Ambulance Driver on the Neo Natal Vehicle previously and now work for Greater Anglia Railway as a Automatic Ticket Gate Operator.

I am interested in helping the local community and as a Community Champion  for CFRS I am able to do this. I also belong to the National Ambulance Service BME Forum which has links with the Asian Fire Service Association and have been in attendance at some of the AFSA conference’s which benefits me in my role as a champion.

So far in the role I have attended 2 training sessions on delivering talks and an open day at Cambridge Fire Station. Helping the community through my work is my proudest achievement. I enjoy many things like reading, and I am also involved with Advanced Driving and belong to Cambridgeshire Advanced Drivers and Riders Group helping with Advanced Tutoring of Associates for the group.  I am also a Church bell ringing and Sunday school teacher and help with a Friday afternoon youth group in Stapleford which is part of the Church and part of the GENR8 project.
