Could you fill these boots?

This month we're running a recruitment campaign for Retained Duty System (RDS) firefighters to help protect communities across the region.

 We are looking to recruit RDS firefighters at a number of locations and are keen to hear from enthusiastic individuals interested in working as on-call firefighters at their local station.

RDS firefighters provide essential fire and emergency cover for their fire station's area. We are looking for suitable individuals, in particular those available during the day, who can travel to their local fire station within five minutes of being paged for a call out.

These people may have other roles such as builders, shopkeepers, nurses, factory workers, stay-at-home parents or homeworkers during working hours but we would ask that, in addition, RDS firefighters are available to attend emergency incidents as and when required.

Firefighters are fully trained, highly skilled personnel, saving lives and property from fire. RDS firefighters provide expertise at road, rail and aircraft accidents, chemical spillages, flooding, forest, heathland and mountain fires and agricultural accidents.

We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, physically fit and can demonstrate common sense, commitment and dedication - and we are keen to recruit those who represent the diverse community that we serve.

We provide close-knit, highly trained teams working with modern, hi-tech equipment. Recruits will also take part in the fire prevention work we carry out to prevent fires happening in our community.

We're interested in hearing from interested individuals from across the whole of the North Wales region - although the first phase of this recruitment campaign will focus on fire stations at Betws Y Coed, Ruthin, Llanrwst, Denbigh, Buckley, Chirk, Holywell, Llangollen, Cerrigydrudion, Amlwch, Benllech, Llangefni, Dolgellau, Bala, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Porthmadog and Pwllheli.
