Part-time fire jobs
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) are recruiting firefighters for their retained duty system, throughout South Lanarkshire.
Firefighters on the retained duty system (RDS) are men and women who live and work close to a specific station who can commit to providing an emergency response within their community.
Local senior officer Alan Fairbairn, said: “In becoming a firefighter on the retained duty system men and women help save lives in their own communities. Just like their full- time colleagues, RDS crews must deal with emergencies while providing comfort and reassurance to members of the public.
“The role of an RDS firefighter is challenging and demanding, with officers potentially facing stressful and hazardous situations – but regular training ensures they have the specialist skills demanded of a modern firefighter. As well as providing an emergency response, the firefighters may also be involved in community safety initiatives aimed at reducing the chance of a tragedy occurring.
“Coming from every walk of life, RDS firefighters include shopkeepers, mechanics, plumbers, chefs, secretaries, engineers and architects – as well as people not employed.” See www.myjobscotland. gov. uk
