On-call firefighters live and/or work within the local community, and are paid to respond to emergencies during whatever periods of cover have been agreed. When he pager goes off, a firefighter can be called to a wide range of incidents, such as commercial and domestic fires, road traffic collisions, rescues from height or water, animal rescue or flooding.
Station Manager Neil Tidball, said: “The role of a firefighter is very rewarding, and it requires determination, courage, motivation, and a genuine desire to serve the community. Successful candidates will become part of a welltrained workforce, earning additional income, and gaining transferable skills such as first aid, driving qualifications and health & safety knowledge – which can also benefit them in their primary employment.”
If you want to support your community, learn new skills and earn additional income, get in touch! Look out for the team next week.
