Become a firefighter

A recruitment day is being held at the fire station in Wragby to help find six new on-call firefighters for the town.

The event takes place at the facility, which has its own special training areas for fires and road traffic collisions, from 10am until 2pm this Saturday, April 21.

Karl Foxall, from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue’s recruitment team, said:

“Our recruitment events give you a great feel for working in the fire service.

“We will talk you through the application process and the physical and written requirements for the role.

“You can even have an informal interview to get the ball rolling.

“If you’re looking for an exciting, challenging and rewarding way to serve your local community, please come and see us.”

The event will give anyone in good health and aged 18 or over the chance to see what it takes to don the uniform, save lives and protect their communities.

The service’s unique recruitment pod will be available to give would-be firefighters a go at actual physical tests.

Officers will also be on-hand to answer any questions.
