Goring fire station fire fighter recruitment campaign

Goring fire station has begun a campaign to recruit more On Call Retained firefighters.
Over the next few months Firefighters will be visiting the businesses and homes in the local area asked to see if a local residents or workers are interested in becoming a firefighter.

The station in Icknield Road, is staffed entirely by On Call Retained firefighters who have main jobs during the day but are on call and can be summoned to attend emergencies both during the day – if they work in the local area or night-time if they live nearby.

Goring fire station employs 12 firefighters but needs about 17 to function at its best. The shortage means staff have had to work extra shifts and be on call more to fill gaps in the service.

Fire fighter Jo HolroydJonathan Holroyd one of the recent additions to the fire crew said “Working as firefighter is fantastic experience. The crew at Goring fire station made me feel very welcome and part of the team. I always wanted to be a firefighter and help the local community to stay safe.

As a local I understand the importance of supporting Goring fire station, to ensure that the quickest response is given to those in need, during an emergency”.

To find out more about becoming a retained firefighter phone Marcus Reay on 07788 183050 or call 0800 587 0870.
