“So many people are unaware that my Dad was a Firefighter.  He is the inspiration to why I am a Firefighter.  My Dad has recently being diagnosed with a dread disease, Moto Neuron Disease (ALS) the identical illness that Joost van Der Westhuizen had.  We were so privileged to obtain the support from my old Fire Department, Rural Metro Emergency Management Services to honour my Father by assisting us with a Fire Truck, PPE and equipment for a photo shoot.  Special thank you to Claudelle Davis and the Management from Rural Metro as well as Sheldon Gouws for making this all possible.  Also to friends and family for all the support, we appreciate it”
