Welcome to the September edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.
Recruiting for wholetime firefighters
The first wholetime firefighter recruitment campaign to be run by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service in over six years gets underway on 12 September.
The initial stages of the recruitment process will be undertaken online. The process will be made available on our website from 12 noon on Monday 12 September, and will stay open until 12 noon on Friday 23 September 2016.
This method of recruitment is designed to make an initial assessment of the potential to work as a firefighter using a range of specifically designed questions examining the qualities and basic knowledge required for the role.

Get your chimney ready for the winter
With the colder, winter months looming, people will begin to start using open fires and their chimneys again. In order to keep you and your family safe from fire, you need to take necessary steps such as ensuring your chimney is swept regularly, depending upon what fuel you burn and we would urge all householders to have a working smoke alarm in their home.
Biker Down courses
If you were the first on the scene of an accident involving a biker, would you know what to do? Would you know who is most at risk, how to protect the area or whether you should remove the helmet of a downed rider?
Actions taken in the first few moments after an accident can be crucial in minimising injuries and can make a real difference to the lives of those involved, but there can be some uncertainty about what to do in these situations.
We are holding a number of free Biker Down training courses this year. For dates and details please visit our website.
Fire Station open days
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service fire stations will be holding free open days over the next few months.
Find out about your local fire station - where it is, what open days or special events they are holding and how to get in contact with them.
