About Triple 9

Triple 9 is a family run business representing three generations of firefighters.  My name is Mandy and I am the co-founder and Managing Director.  My dad joined the retained crew in St Ives when I was just five years old and remained with them until his retirement 18 years later.  I have such happy memories from those days when I would follow them to a shout and get a lift back in the engine.

Keith, is my husband and co-founder of Triple 9.  He joined the retained crew in Camborne in January 1998 and has now served more than 20 years.  He has also been full-time employed in Fire Service Workshops for 15 years and was part of the Cornwall Extrication Team for 10 years.

Following in the footsteps of his grandfather and step father, my eldest son Andrew, has been an on-call firefighter at Camborne for 8 years and is also full-time employed with Phoenix Services Prince’s Trust Team, which is a training provider arm of Cornwall Fire & Rescue.  He is also currently part of the Cornwall Extrication Team.

With so many years of Fire and Rescue involvement, we understand, first-hand, the challenges faced by firefighters.  It is that recognition of their unwavering 24/7 commitment, courageousness and loyalty, and also the dedication and support of service personnel that inspired us to start Triple 9.
