Search for new firefighters

THE SEARCH is on to find men and women who live or work in Hucknall to bolster the retained firefighting crew in the town.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue want to hear from those who are based within five minutes of the station on Watnall Road.

They need to be on-call and ready to respond to emergencies quickly, whether that is from home or a place of work.

They need to be available for at least 12 hours in every 24-hour period and need to be able to attend weekly training and some weekend courses.

A pager will alert them to emergencies, which could range from road accidents to trapped animals.

“This is a flexible, exciting and rewarding job and a wonderful way to be right at the heart of a community,” said station manager Phil Revill.
