Part-time firefighters sought in Gloucestershire

Open evenings are to be run in six Gloucestershire towns to try to recruit more retained firefighters.

Applicants are needed in Dursley, Cinderford, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Newent and Nailsworth.

They need to be over 18, reasonably fit and healthy, and live or work within five minutes of their fire station.

The volunteers are paid a monthly retainer plus call-out fee and are on call at home or at work to be able to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day.

Details of the open evenings, which take place in March, are posted on the fire service website.
