Would you like to make a difference in the community?
Community fire volunteers are being sought to share vital safety messages and help improve lives.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service are on the lookout for enthusiastic and caring people who want to make a difference to their community.
Community fire volunteers are fully trained volunteers who share fire safety advice in their area, visiting elderly and vulnerable people in their homes to undertake a Safer Home Visit for them, fitting smoke alarms if required and offering fire safety advice.
Matthew Hicks, Suffolk County Council's cabinet member for environment and public protection, said: 'The volunteers we have at the moment deliver an excellent service and speak of the pride they have in ensuring a safer community and we would welcome more people signing up to pass on vital fire safety messages to those in their area.'
Applicants must be over 18 and be available for at least 12 hours every month.
