Fireman Sam lives in the village of Pontypandy, at 3 Vale Road. He is a single man, but has a close relationship with his niece and nephew, Sarah and James, and is good friends with the villagers of Pontypandy. Sam works at the Pontypandy fire station and usually drives Jupiter, the fire engine.
Fireman Sam played a main part in every episode of the series, appearing first in The Kite to get Sarah and James' kite off from Dilys' shop roof.
In his spare time, Sam likes being an inventor in his back garden shed. In Sam's Day Off he made a popcorn machine which ended up trapping him in his shed.
In the two specials, Safe with Sam and Snow Business, Sam played major parts in both. For Safe with Sam, he gave out safety advice to the people of Pontypandy in the fire station's anniversary party. In Snow Business, he rescues Trevor's bus from a snowdrift and rescued Sarah and James from breaking ice.
There have been a few times where Sam has needed help from the fire service himself in Deep Trouble for Sam, when he falls down a hole caused by a landslide in Penny's new cottage garden.
Sam is a competent and brave firefighter, who keeps the people of Pontypandy safe. He considers his job to be 'the best job in the world', and often helps out in emergencies even on his days off. However, he does have an inventive streak which sometimes gets him in trouble when one of his inventions goes haywire; since Series 6, he has stopped inventing, though he can be creative from time to time, such as fashioning a barbeque out of an oil drum in Sausages vs. Shrimps.
