Abi, Shop Assistant

Meet Abi, 21, an on-call firefighter for Bury St Edmunds, since June 2015


"It’s the best job in the world; you get paid to do things that few people would experience"

"I always wanted to be a firefighter; I was inspired by my Dad who was an on-call firefighter for Suffolk and is now a Watch Commander for the Ministry of Defence Fire and Rescue Service.

"Being an on-call firefighter is completely different to my other role; I really like the challenge of them being polar opposites. When you’re on-call you never know what your day might be like.

"It’s a role that means the more work I do, the more things I get out of it, particularly with the extra training and firefighter progression."
