STEP BY STEP
NEVER GIVE UP
As a small child, I lived in a street where eight firefighters also had their homes. At the age of five, I went with them to the fire station. I got my own uniform and was allowed to ride along on Saturdays when maintenance was done on the fire engines.
Furthermore, I continued my schooling as a vehicle technician and after my military service,
I became a volunteer at the fire brigade.
I went through several firefighter training courses, from fire officer to fire prevention engineer.
At the age of 40, I was able to turn my hobby as
a volunteer into a professional firefighter and I have always continued to study vehicle technology.
Ten years ago, I noticed that there was a lack of good information for the fire service regarding new energy sources.
We should also not forget that the majority of first responders work in addition to their main job. The technological (r)evolution is going so fast, many of the responders are no longer on the information train…
This does not benefit the safety of us all. We must not get into an information vacuum!
