Fire Service recruiting on-call firefighters

Fire helmets

The village fire station is short of on-call firefighters to man the engine and respond to emergencies.

These part-time roles are open to men and women of any age, who can pass the fitness test, and undertake a training course.

On-call firefighters are paid a retainer and also receive additional pay for call-outs. To qualify you have to live or work within five minutes drive of the fire station at the Bedford Hall.

If you want to find out more, Cambs Fire & Rescue Service is hosting a Taster Session at 7pm on November 23.

During this hands-on session, you’ll participate in drills relating to Road Traffic Collisions and Casualty Evacuation, and you’ll also have the chance to ask the crews any questions you might have about life on-call.

They¬†can only accommodate 12 people for the session, so if you’re interested you’ll need to book your place by e-maiing recruitment@cambsfire.gov.uk before November 20.
