PROSPECTIVE on-call firefighters can attend an open evening at Wiveliscombe station next Thursday (June 5).

Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service is seeking people to be on-call or ‘retained’ firefighters – no experience of firefighting is necessary.

It is an ideal opportunity for men and women who live and/or work within five minutes response time of the station.

Being on-call means providing a level of cover while at work or at home. People who can give cover during the day are particularly needed.

Retained firefighters must be over 18 and have a good level of fitness and strength. Anyone interested should visit the station in North Street from 7pm.
