NIFRS Seeking Volunteers in Cookstown, Coleraine & Downpatrick

1 Mins read

It’s Volunteer Week (1-7 June) and Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service is seeking Volunteers to support community based fire safety education in Cookstown, Downpatrick and Coleraine. The Volunteers will work predominately across the 3 associated Council areas to help NIFRS reduce the number of accidental house fires and therefore help reduce fire deaths and injuries. Volunteers will provide fire safety advice at community initiatives such as community events or distribute fire safety leaflets in their local communities.

Alan Walmsley, Assistant Chief Fire & Rescue Officer, said – “In line with what other Fire & Rescue Services across the UK are doing, we want to involve Volunteers to increase the reach and capacity of our organisation in delivering our fire safety messages to the community and to help keep people safe.

“Volunteers bring a wealth of experience, skills and enthusiasm which we intend to harness through a wide range of activities including distributing fire safety in the leaflets in the community, delivering fire safety advice and supporting local community events.”

NIFRS is proud to protect our community and our community engagement and prevention work is a large part of what we do as a fire and rescue service. We will be looking for Volunteers from all walks of life and each Volunteer will be fully trained, have expenses reimbursed, provided with a NIFRS uniform and will receive on-going support from NIFRS.

Application packs are available to download from the NIFRS website www.nifrs.org. If you would like to speak to someone please contact our Community Engagement & Volunteer Co-Ordinator Julie Rea at NIFRS HQ on 02892 664221 or email [email protected]

The closing date for applications is Monday 19 June 2017.
