Cranborne fire crews NEED YOU!


Date: 15th April, 2016

Firefighters at Cranborne will be holding an open evening on Tuesday 26 April between 7pm and 9pm at the station. This is to encourage more local residents to consider a career as an on-call firefighter.

The open evening will provide opportunities for potential recruits to try out some of the equipment regularly used by firefighters. Members of the crew will be available to share their experiences of being an on-call firefighter, as will recruitment personnel to answer questions on the contract and application process.

Crew Manager Andrew Laskey said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in joining the retained firefighters at Cranborne or across Dorset to come along and have an informal chat. We are currently looking to recruit individuals who can provide cover during the working day as well as at evenings and weekends.”

Will Creighton, District Commander for East Dorset, said: “We are really keen to recruit more on-call firefighters across Dorset but in particular at Cranborne. Being an on-call firefighter means living or working close to the fire station and being able to respond to an emergency when you are needed. Retained firefighters are really important to Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, and the training provided and skills learnt do transfer into your other employment.”

For more information on becoming an on-call firefighter at Cranborne, please attend the open evening, have a look at our website www.dwfire.org.uk or contact Andrew Laskey on 01722 691261 for an informal chat.
