A recruitment drive has been launched to help find retained firefighters who can keep the Ribble Valley community safe.

To help with the search, a fire engine will be visiting local centres on the following dates:

Gym-goers and visitors will be able to meet some of the crew, gain an appreciation of the physical nature of the job and experience some of the equipment.

Closing date for the current campaign is September 9th. If anyone feels they meet the criteria and are interested in applying, they should visit the fire station on Princess Avenue on Monday evenings from 7 pm to talk.
