Fire: Recruitment Update April 2009

Written by RSS Poster Newsletter RSS Feed
Good Afternoon Hope you are all enjoying the weekend sun, as firefighters battle the increasing amount of grass fires that this time of year brings. However, lets see if we can ensure in some way that you can be doing the same sometime in the future. I am afraid there is no big news on the recruitment front with just one addition to our recruitment page. Devon and Somerset are recruiting and initial filtering will be via the application form. Can we take this opportunity to ask if you can help us in any future recruitment campaigns. Whilst every effort is made to ensure we hear about them first, sometimes they do get missed, and we do not wish you to miss out on the opportunity. All we ask is that you email us or contact us is some way so we can post the information up. The recruitment guides have also changed slightly in that the interview secrets documents which was available as a separate disc is now included on both the Recruitment Guide and of course the Interview...

Good Afternoon


Not much is happening in the world of fire service recruitment at the moment but of course the new financial year starts next month so brigades may have a training budget and begin a campaign. As always it’s better to be prepared for them.

With this in mind, we thought we would tell you of some news in respect of the recruitment products we sell via the site.


First of all. The course which you can attend have just been accredited with the Open College Network which means those who attend the course get 2 credits towards NVQ's.


Secondly we would also like to offer a “credit crunch” discount of 10% to anyone who receives this email and purchases any of the products from our page. To take advantage, simply use the word “CARL” as the voucher code to get your 10% discount. The offer will only last until the end of the month.


In addition to the above, those of you...

Happy New Year to All


Recruitment has been very slow so far this year. However, this may be the calm before the storm so please ensure that you are all well prepared when the time comes, don’t leave it until the last minute. Many potentially good firefighters lost out in the latter part of last year by either not expecting brigades to recruit or just not being prepared.


We have now updated the recruitment page which unfortunately only shows 1 brigade as we know of, opening up a recruitment campaign in the coming month.


We have also added a new page with PQA workbooks on, which we feel may benefit many of you that struggle with this area.


As always we have a great selection of DVDs which will help in all areas of the recruitment process and are extremely popular. The feedback we have received from both the above products has been...

Fire: Fire Safety Advice

Written by RSS Poster Newsletter RSS Feed

Good Morning

With the onset of the cold weather, in fact you may wake up knee deep in snow, we thought it only right to highlight some of the increased dangers that can present themselves during this time.

Heaters and electric blankets are likely to be used a lot more and with heavy snow fall across the UK, there is always a danger of power cuts which results in candles being used quite a bit.

Whilst we understand these items will be used, we just wanted to remind you all that our fire safety pages do offer advice and guidance on using the above and help is available wherever to enable you to use them all safely.

Remember the Fire Service Offers all households a free Home Fire Risk Assessment. Further details can be gained from the site.

Keep safe.
