For any young thrill seekers, an awareness evening will be held at Droitwich Fire Station, Friar Street, on Wednesday 18 October 2017 at 7pm. The awareness evening is for the 13-17 year old's and a parent or guardian to find out more about what the YFA is, what is involved and can watch a demonstration from current YFA recruits.

New members of the YFA will undertake a 13 week training course where they will learn firefighting skills, which will then be demonstrated at a passing out parade. As well as spending time learning new skills on the training yard, YFA members also get to attend an annual camp and undertake lots of fun activities.

He continued: "I would encourage any young person from within Hereford and Worcester that can get to Droitwich Fire Station on Wednesday 18 October at 7pm to find out more about what we do and what they can get out of it."
