Hampshire Fire and Rescue are in urgent need of more on-call firefighters.
The fire and rescue service deals with everything from flooding and chemical spills to animal rescue and falls prevention. To qualify as a retained firefighter you must live or work close to a station and be able to attend a three hour training session one evening a week. The service is particularly keen to hear from people who are available to respond from their home or workplace during weekdays.
They say they are not just looking for people who can extinguish fires or cut motorists out of cars, firefighters need to be able to engage with the community and help promote vital safety messages too.
Retained crews can also be involved in the co-responder scheme which is run with South Central Ambulance Service and provides medical care to thousands of people every year.
