Eastchurch Fire Station is manned by retained firemen, this is your opportunity to join us and serve your community and at the same time receive recompense for your time. Eastchurch Parish Council are pleased to support this recruitment drive, volunteers are always required, particularly now (March 2006) when our station is shorthanded.  We are always on the look out for anyone who can give us the daytime cover as required.  Follow the link below for more details.

Join our team as a retained firefighter

Being a retained firefighter is rewarding, exciting and challenging

What is a retained firefighter?

Retained firefighters respond to emergencies from home or work. While they are 'on-call' they carry a pager and must be able to get to the fire station within five minutes.

They are fully trained to respond to all sorts of emergencies, from fires to traffic accidents to floods and chemical spills.

Could you be a retained firefighter?

You will need to:

* Care about your community
* Have energy and enthusiasm
* Be willing to learn
* Want to work as part of a team

If you are over 18 years old, in good health and reasonably fit, you could be a retained firefighter.

We are most interested in any person who is able to give any time on call during the daytime, Monday to Friday.

For more information please call in to Eastchurch Fire Station on a Tuesday evening between 6 – 8.30pm. (Located on Church Road before the Prisons).
