Facebook Live Event Tuesday 25 August

Date: 19th August, 2020

Anyone interested in becoming a firefighter with Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service can find out more at a special Facebook Live event being held next Tuesday (25 August).

After the success of the previous live Q&A which formed part of a virtual open day last month, another event will be held on the Service’s Facebook page @DWFireRescue covering all things on-call and wholetime firefighter recruitment.

Many of DWFRS’s on-call stations need new firefighters to join, and the Q&A is an opportunity to find out more about the level of commitment needed, the application process and eligibility criteria.

Anyone interested in becoming a wholetime firefighter can also join the session to find out more about vacancies that are due to be advertised in October.

Area Manager Andy Cole said: “Although we aren’t officially recruiting for wholetime firefighters until October, we’re starting to promote the process now as we’re aware that one of the biggest barriers that prevent some people from applying is their fitness levels. That’s why we’re encouraging anyone who’s interested in becoming a firefighter – either wholetime or on-call – to get involved in the Q&A so we can help potential recruits prepare and build up their fitness ahead of the application process.”

The Service will be going live from Warminster fire station at 7:30pm and can be watched by visiting: www.facebook.com/DWFireRescue
