Welcome to the August edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.
Apply to be a Cheshire firefighter
Our latest wholetime firefighter recruitment campaign got underway on Monday 14 August.
The initial stages of the recruitment process will be undertaken online and the process will stay open until 4pm on Wednesday 30 August.
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.
Stay safe during the summer months, use the links below to access fire safety tips and advice:
Fire Station open days
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service fire stations will be holding free fire station 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.
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.
