VOLUNTEERS are needed to help save lives.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is looking for people in North Herts to give their time to a new fire safety scheme.

They will help raise awareness of fire safety in their community through a range of activities, including attending community events, supporting local fire safety campaigns and generating home fire safety checks in homes of people who are most at risk of fire.

They will also help play a role in reducing the incidents of arson.

"Our volunteers will not be expected to replace the work of firefighters in delivering community fire safety initiatives, they will complement the good work that is already being carried out by building even closer community links," said chief fire officer Roy Wilsher.

"By getting local people involved we hope to get important fire safety information to people who can be difficult to reach through conventional methods."

Volunteers are asked to contribute around six hours per month, or as much time they are able to give.

They will work closely with the local fire safety team and their local fire stations and will be given full training to help prepare them for their role.

The service would especially welcome volunteers from people who are generally under-represented in the fire service, such as women and those from black and ethnic minority groups.

Anyone interested in applying, or who would like to find out more, should contact Sean Comerford on 01763 822102.
