On call firefighters needed in Eastwood

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is on the look-out for firefighters in Eastwood.

The service needs ‘on call’ firefighters who live within five minutes of the station in Nottingham Road.

On call, or retained, firefighters need to be ready to respond to emergencies from home or work.

They need to be available for at least 12 hours in a 24-hour period, and be able to attend weekly training and some weekend courses. A pager will alert them to an emergency call and they could find themselves responding to fires, road traffic collisions, trapped people and animals, flooding and other water rescue incidents. Firefighters also get involved in fire prevention activities, helping to promote fire safety.

To find out more, call 0115 967 5842 or visit notts-fire.gov.uk or jobs.eastmidlandsfire-recruitment.gov.uk. The closing date is April 15.
