Call for more firefighters in Nether Stowey
A CALL has gone out for more on-call firefighters in Nether Stowey.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service is holding an open day for anybody interested, on August 21, where people can find out what being a retained firefighter involves.
A service spokesman said: “No previous experience of fire fighting is necessary for this role – the ideal prospective firefighter starts with a commitment to the community, a positive attitude and a good level of fitness.”
However, people do not need to be super-fit. “Sometimes people overestimate the levels required and this can deter them (particularly women) from applying”, the spokesman said.
The open day runs from 3pm to 7pm, at Nether Stowey Fire Station.
