Retained firefighters needed in East Lancashire
2:23pm Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
LANCASHIRE fire and rescue service is recruiting retained firefighters for fire stations across East Lancashire.
Retained fire fighters are normally asked to give between 60 and 120 hours per week, but patterns and hours of cover vary from station to station.
The biggest requirement that the fire service has is for day time cover Monday to Friday between 6am and 6pm and 24 hours across Saturday and Sunday.
Retained firefighters often have another job, and rather than being based at a fire station, retained firefighters provide on-call cover from home or their place of work.
They respond to emergencies when their pager alerts them, so must live within five minutes travel time from the station. To find out more visit: http://www.lancsfirerescue.org.uk/jobs/current-vacancies/.
