After completing his firefighter training at the Cardiff Academy, Sam returned to Pontypandy and moved into a house at 3 Vale Road and joined the Pontypandy Fire Service, where he is the lead firefighter and regular driver of Jupiter the fire engine.
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 unfortunately ended up trapping him in his shed.
There have been a few times where Sam has needed help from the fire service himself. For example in Deep Trouble for Sam, when he falls down a hole caused by a landslide in Penny's new cottage garden.
During Series 6, he moves to a house much closer to the fire station.
Sam's brother Charlie is a local fisherman and his sister-in-law Bronwyn runs the whole fish café. Sam is a kind and attentive uncle to Charlie's and Bronwyn's children, Sarah and James.
Sam is a competent and brave firefighter, who helps keep 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.
He lives in the village of Pontypandy. 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.
Fireman Sam is brave, modest and dependable. He selflessly puts his life on the line to help others and everyone in Pontypandy knows that nothing is too much trouble for Fireman Sam. He is renowned for keeping a cool head in a hot spot. It's only when he's really surprised he exclaims, "Great Fires of London!"
