Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a firefighter?

We are planning 'Have a go' days to support candidates who are going through the recruitment and selection process. Our sessions give you practical, hands-on experience of what it's like to be a firefighter. They also offer guidance on helping you achieve your fitness goals.
