Tweedale Needs You

Do you live or work within five minutes of Tweedale Fire Station in Telford ? Could you be an On-call Firefighter ? These are the questions being asked by staff at Tweedale fire station where a drop in session aimed at recruiting more firefighters is being held on Saturday, September 6 between 10am and 2pm.

Staff will be available to answer any questions people may have on becoming an On-call firefighter.

A Firefighting Life for Shropshire Women

More Shropshire women interested in becoming county firefighters attended an introductory session at Shrewsbury fire HQ.

A total of 19 turned out for the third "taster" session over the weekend following on from similar events in Craven Arms and Oswestry earlier this year.

They learned how they could join the county’s 300 plus “on call” fully trained firefighters who deal with around the clock emergencies.

Women Firefighters - A "Taster" Day on July 19 in Shrewsbury

More women are being encouraged to become firefighters by enrolling with Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.

A third “taster” day just for women will be held at Shrewsbury fire HQ on July 19 after two successful previous events in Craven Arms and Oswestry.

The brigade wants to attract more women to join the county’s 300 plus “on call” fully trained firefighters who deal with around the clock emergencies.

Women's Firefighting Taster Day

We are holding a taster event to encourage women to look at becoming part-time professional firefighters. To be a retained firefighter you need to live within 5 minutes of your local fire station, be fit and reliable, and be able to attend for duty at any time within your agreed hours. We provide training, support, promotion opportunities, excellent pay and conditions of service and a strong commitment to equality.

The event will include:
