New recruit closer to her dreams
Twenty-five-year-old Molebogeng Pelele is a successful candidate who is now at Molopo Base in the North West. Pelele matriculated seven years ago and then did a six-month learnership in disaster management with the fire brigade.
That’s when her interest in firefighting was awakened.
Pelele says she struggled to get a job after her learnership ended and continued to apply without luck until she heard that WOF was recruiting firefighters.
“I came here with so much hope and I knew if I gave it my all I would succeed. Now that I’ve made it here I am planning to work hard so I can move myself from one level to another,” says Pelele.
Pelele believes having the experience and educational background that WOF will provide will come in handy in the near future.
After undergoing training at the training academy in Mpumalanga, she says her favourite exercises were the fire wall, fitness and drilling. “I am looking forward to fighting fires and saving lives,” says Pelele.
