Barkshire Firefighter in Training


My 2018 ...

Having spent the last year learning what it takes to be a Firefighter and all the training that they do day to day I wanted to highlight some parts of the job. 

The funds raised from my Barkshire Firefighter in Training 2018 Calendar will supply Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service with a CPR Dog Mannequin to assist their Canine First Aid Training. The remaining proceeds will go towards supplying the rest of the Thames Valley including Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service; Buckinghamshire; Milton Keynes Fire & Rescue Service and Surrey Fire & Rescue Service with Pet Oxygen Masks from Smokey Paws with priority going to Fire Stations located near Rescue Centres. I sold just over 200 calendars raising over £2500.

Once again I couldn’t have put the calendar together without the help and support of my friends. My super talented Photographer Julie from Julie Robertson Pet Photography, Ben from Thames Valley Printers. Print funding for my calendar has come from an anonymous donor, my good friend Clare from Tinkerwolf Trinkets. The Little Cottage Cleaners and South West Care Homes. 

A special thanks to all my good friends at Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service for their continued support and time especially Maidenhead, Bracknell & Slough Fire Stations for offering their time for Calendar photographs. I have also made some new friends across the border into Surrey. Thank you to the Surrey Fire Dogs especially Miss Tilly & Miss Lottie for joining my in my calendar and also to the crew at Walton on Thames for their help.

Thank you to Ruffwear UK for sending me my LifeVest to keep me safe during my Water Rescue Training.

2018 has been a busy year for me and my three paws.

I has continued to work on promoting fire safety messages such as "Test it Tuesday" each week and supported other fire safety weeks.

I has helped promote water safety messages especially with the warm summer we have had and so many peoples entering water to cool off. I did write an article for Dogs Monthly Magazine on Water Safety for dog owners.

I has been over to Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire to make new friends and the PA did gets to meet Reqs and the late CC, two fire investigations dogs that work for Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service.

In June 2018 I did make some new friends within the RNLI to helps me with promoting impawtant water safety messages.

In July 2018 I joined a group of special friends for a little walk up a little hill called Scafell Pike to raise funds for Emergency Throwline Boards. I also spent a few days working alongside Firefighters of Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.

I has taken part in my 4th Maidenhead Boundary Walk to help raise funds for the printing of my third calendar Barkshire Firefighter on Tour, raising funds for The Firefighter’s Charity.
