Firefighters need to support each other and become role models in our teams

23 Apr,2015Profiles

Nicolas Mokwali is one of the hard working crew members in the Wolmaransstad base.

The 25 years old fire fighter was nominated as a role model by his team mates at the base during the compliments role play sessions as the team had to express their appreciation towards one another.

The team mates had to express a compliment in an appropriate way to whomever team mate they felt needed the compliment. As a result, Nicolas became the team’s best choice as they described him as a good listener and a motivator. According to one of the fire fighters, Oumie Moeng,

Nicolas is well mannered and consistently offers his help to others. “Nicolas is extremely supportive of us and a great role model to all of us as he is always putting his best foot forward no matter how discouraged we might feel at times”, said Moeng.

When he was asked how he feels about being nominated as a role model, he said he feels very honoured. “My team mates are my strength as our hotshot name states

“Undisputed” meaning we are Unbreakable. We chose that name because no one can come between us. We love and encourage one another at all time”, Nicolas said.
