  4. Hi guys,just like to say keep up the good work , you guys are doing a Fab job.

    Vicky D,

  5. Hi, I just wanted to congratulate you on the site and all the wonderful work that you do. As a serving fire fighter with DFRMO I’m very much looking forward to following this site and finding out more about what you do and the contribution you make to your community. Keep up the good work and one day when I’m pensioned out of the Navy I hope there may be a role for me!

  6. hello,
    Thankyou for your letter. we are a retained fire station, that means we are part time so we don’t recruit Wholetime Firefighters. Our employer, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue is currently not recruiting Wholetime Firefighters due to budget constraints. I don’t envisage any recruitment for probably three years. I’m sorry that probably doesn’t help you but I hope you find employment as a fire fighter soon.

    Thanks
    W.M. Fred Glanville

  7. Hi great blog it really gives people a idea of what retained firefighters do, i myself am looking into becoming a firefighter one day and hopefully maybe do retained work aswell give something to the community. its nice to see a retained firefighters way of life as at normal Wholetime stations its 9 till 6 2 days 2 nights then 4 off I’m from London and we are a very big brigade with 112 fire stations plus one river station.

  8. Hey Alex, Nice picture we love it in California US. Lots of girls interested! Big cute fireman. Must be the uniform! Debbie

    • Hey the cute fireman named Alex is quite popular in the USA. All the girls are drulling over him. I am now taking tickets to see who will win a date with him. They will even pay for his ticket to get here. But he has to bring his uniform because girls in the US like uniforms. LOL Love Debbie

  10. Hiya,

    I am a teacher at a Nursery in Yelverton (War Memorial Hall) and was wondering if you would be kind enough to visit us for half an hour one day if you could spare the time? If not could is the station staffed during the day so that we could visit? They are under 5 so the evening is not really possible…
    Look forward to hearing from you,
    Many thanks,
    Ashley

    • Ashley
      Thanks for the E.Mail. Yes, we would be happy to visit, subject to crew availability and fire calls. When would be convenient, and what time would you like us to arrive. Can you give me a few dates, it will help ensure I have a crew.

      Thanks
      Fred

  11. Thanks a million for letting me park when the weather was too bad for a little punto to make it home.
    next time could you please give it a full valet or is that pushing it too far??????

  12. Do you ever hold open days at the fire station? My children are desperate to find out!

    • Fire Stations do hold open days but at present we don’t have one planned. Children often visit the station with organisations such as the Scouts and Guides or on some occasions Classes from local schools and play groups. If they are members of an organisation we would gladly arrange an evening to show them around the station and appliance. Just make a request through the blog or visit the station on a Monday night to arrange a visit.

      • Hi,

        Just wondering if your can help? My name is Jamie Hughes, I’m the producer and co presenter for The Josh Andrews Show on Hospital Radio Plymouth. The Josh Andrews Show is aimed to entertain Derriford Hospital ‘s younger audience, which is mostly under the age of 18, but we have found that our transmission on 87.7FM attracts us listeners from all ages. Since the show started in December 2007, we have recently come out in first place in our monthly listening figures as the most listened to weekend programme on our Patientline entertainment system beating Radio 2, BBC Radio Devon and our local commercial radio station Heart.

        On the show we are starting a new feature called ‘Challenge Josh’, this is where we send our presenter Josh Andrews out to learn a new skill each week. I was just wondering if there is any possiblity that Josh could come spend some time and learn some basic skills with the gang at Yelverton Fire Station?

        If this is possible then we would come and record some material, which we can used for the show i.e short Interviews with the crew and capture some of what Josh experiences doing his time at the fire station. We can also supply you with copies of the package which is broadcast on our radio show.

        I hope that maybe we can arrange something. Look forward to hearing from you.

        Jamie Hughes
