'Have a Go event' for people interested in becoming an On-Call firefighter

(Last Updated On: March 7, 2019)

Throughout March and April, Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service are running ‘Have a Go’ events for everyone interested in being an On-Call firefighter.

These events will give a real overview of the role, including information on what your time commitment would be, as well as the strength and fitness expectations required.

Recruitment and Retention Officer, Caroline Anderson explained: “Being an On-Call firefighter is a big commitment. But being in a team of likeminded people, learning life skills you never expected to, is both rewarding and fun.  Why wouldn’t you want to be paid to help your community, it’s probably the best job in the world!”

The event will be held at Totnes fire station on Saturday 6th April from 9.30am – 1pm. This event covers the following recruiting stations: Ashburton, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Kingsbridge.

Please email your expression of interest to haveagoday@dsfire.gov.uk. Deadline April 1st

Names will be accepted on a first come first served basis. This opportunity is for EVERYONE over the age of 18 who wants to do something new and challenging.
