JOIN THE RANKS Fire service in call for new recruits
DO you have what it takes to be a fire fighter? Mid and West Wales Fire Service is calling for people from Pontyates, Ponthenri and Trimsaran to come and join the ranks.
On-call firefighters for daytime cover are needed at Pontyates Fire Station, and the service is particularly keen to hear from those from the three different villages who could be available during the day.
The service is encouraging interest from all comers — stating it is the perfect opportunity to make a difference to the community. By becoming an on call firefighter you will continue to work your normal day-job, but would remain on-call to respond to a range of emergencies in your area — from fires to road traffic accidents. And becoming an on-call fire fighter also provides the opportunity to work with the community and deliver safety advice.
Head of Carmarthenshire County Command Roger Thomas said: "We welcome applications from all members of the community and will provide all the training you need to deliver community safety advice, tackle road traffic collisions and fight fires."
