Cleveland fire brigade are great. Great banter between shifts and volunteers, as always there's s few funny ones but mainly fab guys and girls. Always plenty to do but there are a lack of vehicles (or so they say) at the moment so it's hard. The volunteering at the Fire Support was great for the first 6 months from January, but it's gone down hill since the "groundworks" dole collectors have moved in. I think the managers are more interested in meeting targets than caring about how the brigade look and who's in and happy. Don't get me wrong there are a few great guys but most are only there because they have to be for their dole money. Most also don't work who volunteer at the network with the exception of a few- which has its pros and cons.
However! The Cleveland fire brigade are a fab company and the bosses are always there to provide reassurance even when stretched to the limit!
Some volunteers have no work ethic.
