We are pleased to announce that Dan Johnson has re-joined the Robinson team as our Production Logistics Controller. Dan will be working closely with the workshop team and procurement to ensure the seamless delivery of our products and service.
Aside from this, Dan works as an On Call Firefighter for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue working at Melbourne Station. He provides over 84 hours cover availability outside of his working hours for Robinson and responds to fire calls through the evenings and weekends.
On Call Firefighters are a vital part of today’s fire and rescue service. Nationwide, approximately 18,000 on call firefighters provide efficient, cost effective and reliable fire and rescue cover to around 60% of the UK.
Responding to Fires, Road Traffic Collision’s (RTC’s), Water Rescues, Trauma Care, HAZMAT incidents and animal rescues.
Dan carries a pocket alerter, which is activated when he is needed and he has a maximum of 5 minutes to report to the fire station and mobilise the necessary appliances. Apart from being on call, Dan attends drill night every Tuesday evening to maintain his training, he actively promotes fire prevention through giving safe and well visits in the local area, fitting smoke alarms and giving fire safety advice.
As you can see this is a vital role in the service and requires a lot of commitment and dedication to the cause. We are very proud of what Dan does and would like to take the time to congratulate him on his achievements to date and professionally we wish him all the success within the Robinson team.
