MORE on-call firefighters are needed in three Vale fire stations.
Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service is looking for more firefighters to sign up at stations in Pershore, Broadway and Pebworth and are holding awareness sessions to talk to potential applications.
The job requires individuals to live or work within five minutes of the fire station and all recruits must be aged 18 or over.
And the service is looking to recruit people who can work as part of a team and have compassion, sensitivity, discretion and diplomacy in the role of a firefighter.
The sessions will take place in Pershore on Tuesday (September 11), Pebworth on Wednesday (September 12) and in Broadway on Tuesday, September 25. All three events start at 7pm.
Station Commander Station Mark Strutt said: “The role can suit men and women from a wide range of backgrounds who, can get to the fire station within 5 minutes of being paged.
"On call firefighters are fully trained and gain knowledge and skills in areas such as accident prevention and first aid that can be of real benefit at home or in the workplace.
"The role of on call firefighter is challenging and extremely rewarding and these men and women provide a vital service for their local communities – saving lives at the scene of road traffic collisions and preventing the spread of fire in homes and businesses.”
