Call goes out for retained firefighters

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service is on the lookout for on-call firefighters in Helston and is holding a recruitment drive to help boost numbers.

On-call firefighters respond to a range of emergencies including fire incidents, road traffic collisions and flood situations. They have everyday lives and jobs, until the pager sounds – then they become professional firefighters and help save lives.

A recruitment morning will be held at Helston’s Community Fire Station on September 23 from 9am. Applicants can find out more about the service and the role at the informal interview, which includes an opportunity to try out a multi-stage fitness test. Appropriate running equipment and clothing is advised.

There is no need to book, simply drop in from 9am. For more details call the Fire Recruitment Hotline on 01872 323800 or email
