Could You Cut It As A Firefighter?

Dorchester Fire Station Demo

8:03am 30th September 2014

Do you think you could cut it as a firefighter in Dorset?

Dorset Fire and Rescue are looking for more on call recruits.

They're holding a recruitment event at their station in Wareham today from 8am to 8pm where you can go along for an informal chat.

19 of Dorset's 26 fire stations are crewed 24 hours a day by on call personnel who live nearby.

Craig Baker, Area Commander for Dorset told Wessex FM; "This is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in joining the retained fire service to come along.  We are currently looking to recruit individuals who can provide cover in these station areas, in particular during the day."

The crew will be more than happy to talk to any willing recruits and give them a chance to try out some of the firefighting equipment and kit.
