“I’ve learnt that there is no easy way in life, you must learn to work well with your team and  as a individual,l ” said Nqobile Mangwanyana, a former Working on Fire,  fire fighter.

Nqobile was recruited on the 3rd of April in 2014 with the Albert Falls team, “Before joining WoF I was doing my in-service training for a diploma in Public Management,” Nqobile says.

She said that she learnt a lot from WoF including the importance of mentally and physically fitness when working as a fire fighter.

She said: “I am currently working as a Fire fighter at  Umsminga Local Municipality. I’m grateful for the first aider and fire awareness experience I gained while working at WoF, it really assist in my current position.”

Nqobile added that the experience she has  put her at an advantage at her current work as she knows how to address different target audiences.

However, Nqobile has further dreams, she would like to start her own business in future. “To my former colleagues I’d say use every lesson you get wisely, don’t take the skills you have for granted , they can take you further in life if you work hard,” she concluded.
