South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is launching a recruitment campaign for full time Firefighters today. In the first recruitment of its type for four years, the Fire and Rescue Service is looking for community spirited individuals who are serious about safety and able to demonstrate the skills relevant to a 21st century Fire and Rescue Service.
All Firefighters are trained to become operationally competent and are able to deal with a variety of rescue and firefighting incidents. But South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is looking for candidates who are ready to fit into a world that isn’t all about ‘getting the shout’.
Over the last 15 years, Firefighters in the UK have adapted to the many changes implemented by Fire and Rescue Services. This means that as well as dealing with the many emergencies faced within our community, Firefighters are heavily involved in educating local communities to prevent incidents in the first place.
Acting Chief Fire Officer Huw Jakeway said, “Our Firefighters work extremely hard every day to keep the people of South Wales safe and aware of the risks of fire in the home. They help communities to reduce the risk and understand what to do in an emergency and we have made a huge difference over the last 15 years in reducing fire deaths and injuries in the home. We want to continue this trend, and so we would like to see applications from those who can connect with people in order to help them stay safe.”
“Applicants need to be prepared for all kinds of emergencies as Firefighters deal with thousands of incidents each year ranging from house and building fires to flooding, road traffic collisions, water rescues and animal rescues. Their operational skills can mean that they are required at unusual, serious and challenging incidents all over the UK. Being a professional Firefighter is an extremely challenging yet rewarding vocation, which is why we are looking for the best people to join our team.”
The Application Form and information Pack for WDS Recruitment have now been removed and are no longer available.
