Welcome from Group Manager Karen Pointer, Mid Kent Group:
"It is a pleasure to welcome our new trainees who are now operational firefighters in Mid group and able to use their skills gained to help the people of Kent in their time of need.
This is the first time in over 10 years since we have had whole time trainees on operational fire stations. Feedback from their line managers is they are settling in well and are demonstrating all the right values, enthusiasm and technical knowledge as trainees.
"As a Mid group team we look forward to seeing them all develop into qualified firefighters and progressing their careers further."
