Kent Fire Service appeal for volunteers

Kent Fire and Rescue Service's community volunteer scheme is searching for enthusiastic recruits to join the team.

The scheme currently has 47 unpaid volunteers who contribute their time to undertake a range of directed community activities.

Volunteers support both the KFRS dedicated community safety team as well as stations throughout Medway and Kent.

Tasks vary from attending community safety events and promoting home fire safety to highlight outdoor spaces that are at risk of fire.

I am constantly amazed by the amount of time our volunteers are willing to give up, as well as their limitless enthusiasm and interest in what the organisation does. I have had fantastic feedback from staff and now the volunteers are experienced I am being requested to provide volunteers to support station-led events so that they can continue to engage with the public if the operational staff are called away.”
