We are being asked if we want a second job as a firefighter.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue wants to sign up more on-call staff.

It has already got four hundred across the Duchy. But it says it is particularly keen to find new recruits in Camborne, Fowey, Launceston, Liskeard, Looe, Lostwithiel, Polruan and Torpoint.

Area manager Derek Walker said, “Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service’s on-call firefighters are ordinary people who live or work in the community and who come from every walk of life. The thing they have in common is that they have made the decision to put something back into their community and become a trained firefighter.

"As well as the huge amount of training they will receive to become a firefighter, they will also have the chance to attend first aid courses and LGV driving courses."

To become an on call firefighter you must be at least 17 years and 6 months old (as you must turn 18 years old before starting employment as a firefighter), be physically fit and live and/or work very close to your Community Fire Station (you need to get to the station within 4 minutes of an alerter-call).

You can find more details here.
