The events will give potential applicants the opportunitiy to meet full-time and on-call crews, as well as training and recruitment officers, who will explain exactly how to follow the recruitment process.

The two events will all take place in October at Winsford Fire Station on Sadler Road.

The first event is on Thursday October 23rd from 10am until 3pm and the second is on Saturday October 25th, also from 10am until 3pm.

Service Delivery Manager for Cheshire West & Chester, Steven Barnes, said: “We’re looking for committed men and women to join our current on call crew at Winsford.

“Recruits will be helping to provide the best possible service to their community and will be trained to national firefighter standard.

“We’re looking for people from all walks of life with a combination of practical ability, mental resilience, courage, physical fitness and the ability to remain calm and focused in emergency and difficult situations.”
