THE VOICE OF OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES
The Firefighters Podcast is a global podcast seeking to develop, inspire & motivate the world of emergency services operators through a series of wide-ranging conversations celebrating those within our emergency services family and encouraging the support of this incredible group of people.
Operational UK firefighter Pete Wakefield speaks with individuals from all walks of life who share a connection with, can add value to, or can develop those who choose this life path
The Firefighters Podcast is available on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer or wherever you listen to podcasts.
The firefighter's podcast was created in the hope that we can grow an environment where the status quo is to lift up, appreciate & celebrate our brothers and sisters in the emergency services including the military. acknowledging, unwrapping and drawing lessons from how they have tested their internal fortitude and resilience through open and frank dialogue.
We want the podcast to inspire people to develop themselves, celebrate, support and even join our emergency services.
The emergency services sector acts with an undeniable magnetic pull for all those with shared common values and who stand for something more than a badge or a brand, they seek purose through service & want more than a standard 9 to 5.
We aim to encourage curiosity and bold action in our emergency services. We want to help people grow an appetite for big goals and spread optimism, inspiration, and a continued admiration for front-line emergency responders.
