Fire Service recruiting for volunteers

in News

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) is urging people to consider applying to become a Community Volunteer.

The Service recently launched a recruitment campaign for its Community Volunteer Programme. If you want to help with fire safety work in Herefordshire and Worcestershire live in the two counties, are aged 18 or over and you're looking for a new challenge, why not consider joining our team of Community Safety Volunteers?

The scheme offers the chance to make a difference within your community, to meet new people and to support a wide range of training activities. Volunteering activities may take place during the day, in the evening or at weekends. Volunteers will be provided with a uniform and will receive comprehensive training for all the activities they undertake, with the opportunity to develop further skills and experience within their roles.

Becky Valender, Senior Community Risk Technician, HWFRS said: "The volunteers will carry out a variety of tasks including attending events or training exercises, accompanying crew members to carry out home fire safety checks or role playing as casualties for large scale Service exercises,. We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds, who have a wide range of skills and who are willing to do anything."

She continued: "Anyone interested in finding out more about the role of a Volunteer with HWFRS can email volunteer@hwfire.org.uk or telephone 0800 032 1155".

The closing date for applications is Friday 20th November 2015 at 5.00pm. Interviews will take place in Herefordshire and Worcestershire at a later date.
