Ladder climb

Try before you apply days

Want to know what it really takes to be a modern, ambitious firefighter for Avon Fire and Rescue Service?

Throughout February, potential applicants from Bristol, BANES, South Glos and North Somerset are invited to learn more about the Service and what it really means to be a wholetime firefighter.

Ahead of the opening of applications in March, AF&RS is hosting a 'try before you apply' recruitment days where you can find out everything you need to about the practical side of the role, and speak to service firefighters about their experiences in the role.

Why not come along, try and learn about:

  • Breathing apparatus
  • Hose running
  • Trauma care
  • Ladders
  • Turntable Ladders
  • Casualty drags
  • The trucks

Staff will be on hand to take you around each of the various equipment stations and discuss various elements of the role.
