    More Information (Star Radio - Cambridge is not responsible for external websites)

    The events encourage women and people from a variety of backgrounds to try their hand at being a firefighter or work in our Combined Fire Control taking 999 calls and mobilising fire engines.

    The sessions will take place over the summer, ahead of wholetime firefighter recruitment opening in September.

    Those signing up can try out some of the practical activities that firefighters need to be able to do, and some that form part of our selection process, including climbing a ladder and taking part in some of the drills. You’ll also hear about the wider role of a firefighter in preventing and protecting communities from fires and other emergencies. In addition, during the sessions participants can find out more about working in Combined Fire Control, and even have a go at some of the entry assessments, including typing and attention to detail tests.

    There will be two ‘Have a Go’ events per day at each location, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with one of them being a women only session. During the sessions you’ll be supported by a team of experienced firefighters and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

    Sessions will take place during the following times:

    Milton Fire Training Ground - Tuesday 23rd July 2019

    8.30am until 12pm (Women only)
