This coming Saturday, Garstang fire station is hosting an on-call recruitment event between 10 am and 2 pm. The event is aimed at people who live or work within five minutes of the station on Green Lane West and who want to make a difference to their local community.
Garstang fire station is crewed by on-call firefighters who provide on-call cover from home or their place of work and they respond to emergencies when their pager alerts them. Garstang firefighters also drill every Monday evening between 7 pm and 9 pm.
Firefighters must be 18 years of age when they join, but this should not dissuade 17-year-olds from registering their interest.
If you, a family member or friend would like to know more about the role of an on-call firefighter, the process for applying for a position when recruitment opens on Monday 1st July, the pay and benefits, and the training required, you can visit station anytime on Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm.
