Yordie Constantine, of Jamestown, has recently become a newly trained Retained Firefighter within the St Helena Fire & Rescue Service (SHF&RS).
Yordie recently completed an intensive Fire Fighter Development Training Programme which began in February 2019 to become a Retained Firefighter. He then undertook a six-week course covering many aspects of firefighting including Road Traffic Collison training, Breathing Apparatus training, Water & Hydrant Supplies, and Ladder Drills, to name a few.
SHF&RS Watch Manager, Jason Lawrence, said:
“Yordie should be very proud of his achievement in becoming a Retained Firefighter. It is a real commitment, not only to the SHF&RS, but to the community as a whole.
“The service would like to wish Yordie all the very best in his new role and I hope that he enjoys the next stage of his development as he embarks on his new career as a Retained Firefighter within the SHF&RS.”
As a Retained Firefighter, Yordie will attend a range of incidents which could include anything from fires, road traffic collisions, and land searches, to community fire safety initiatives.
