Date : 04 July 2022

East Sussex Fire and Rescue are looking to recruit on-call firefighters across East Sussex, with Lewes Community Fire Station opening its doors for a special event. 

It’s holding a Have a Go day on 9th July from 10.30am to 2.30pm, where you will have the chance to try your hand at a variety of job-related activities. 

Firefighters will be there to answer all your questions around applying for this role and it’s a chance for those interested in becoming an On-Call firefighter to get firsthand advice and experience. 

On-call firefighters are ordinary people that combine their day jobs with being On-Call for fire and rescue situations and emergencies. When the call comes in, they drop what they are doing and become part of the East Sussex Fire and Rescue team. 

To be an On-Call firefighter, you must have a strong desire to support the local community, be enthusiastic about working as part of a team and live or/and work within 5 minutes of your local fire station.
