West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is holding a Have-a-Go Day at Worthing Fire Station on Saturday 22nd April, 10:00-15:00, and everyone is invited.

Whether you’ve always dreamed of being a firefighter, recently started considering it, or never even thought about it – now is the perfect time to give it a go!

The day aims to give people a chance to find out more about becoming a retained (on-call) firefighter, and to try some of the physical tests and use the equipment involved in the recruitment process.

In addition to having a go, there will also be ample opportunity to ask questions. There will be a number of current retained firefighters on station during the event who will be willing and able to answer any questions you have about life as a retained firefighter.

The day will be held at Worthing Fire Station, however the event is open to anyone so please join us wherever you may live.

Steve Clack, WSFRS Central Group Commander, commented; “This Have-a-Go Day is a very informal event so if you are interested in coming along please feel free to turn up on the day. Our service couldn’t operate without the fantastic work of our retained crews, however we make no secret of the fact our current crews need more firefighters. If you think you might like to join us, even if you just want to find out a little more information, we’d be delighted to welcome you on 22 April.”

This event will be the first in a number of Have-a-Go Days this spring and summer as WSFRS continues a recruitment drive for retained firefighters across the whole county.

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is at the heart of West Sussex County Council's Communities and Public Protection Directorate, working to support communities to become safer, stronger and more resilient through a combination of prevention, protection and response activities.
