DWFRS support a busy summer of events across Dorset and Wiltshire


Date: 13th July, 2018

Fire crews, support staff and community volunteers across Dorset and Wiltshire are supporting a busy summer of events and using attendance to educate and inform local communities about the risk of fire in the hot and dry conditions we are experiencing.

Fire crews, support staff and volunteers from across Dorset and Wiltshire are supporting Bourne Free this weekend (Saturday 14th July), the Emergency Services Family Fun Day in Kings Park, Bournemouth next weekend (21st July) and numerous fun days, open days and family events into the summer holidays.

Area Manager Craig Baker, who is responsible for operational activity across Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole said: ““Our operational fire crews have been extremely busy over the last few weeks, dealing with 95 fires in the open alone since 1st July. Their attendance at events across Dorset is a great opportunity for the community to meet the crews who are attending the incidents in their local areas. This also enables our teams to provide fire safety advice, to reduce the number and impact of incidents and through the #BeOneOfUs recruitment campaign, raise awareness and interested in joining our On-Call crews!”

Rex Webb, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Advisor for DWFRS said: “We are proud to be taking the lead once again in the Bourne Free Pride parade this year and having a display in the Square Bournemouth. We see this as an opportunity of demonstrating our commitment to diversity and creating an inclusive workplace where people are valued for who they truly are. Our attendance at this event, as well as other diverse community events across Dorset & Wiltshire link to our #BeOneOfUs positive approach to recruitment and desire to be an employer of choice. We look forward to meeting people from our diverse communities at these events over the coming weeks.”

A programme of Fire Service led and community events can be found on the Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service website – dwfire.org.uk
