Firefighter's role will be explained
CORNWALL Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) will hold a series of events to give an insight into the role of a firefighter.
The service is opening its doors to people who may not have previously thought about becoming firefighters, and is particularly aimed at women and people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities.
Two-hour sessions will give participants the chance to learn more about the service, job role and recruitment process.
"The role of a firefighter is continually changing to meet the constant new challenges that face the fire and rescue service nationally and our local community," said group manager, Kathryn Billing, from CFRS.

"We want our firefighters to reflect the community we serve and are running these awareness events for people for under-represented groups who have not considered a career in the fire service before.
"In particular, we want to hear from women and people from BME communities."
The sessions are not a required part of applying to become a firefighter but are an opportunity to learn more about the job by talking to current serving firefighters.
The CFRS human resources team will also be on hand to discuss the recruitment process.
Sessions will be held at Falmouth Community Fire Station tomorrow from 10am until noon and from 2pm to 4pm. They will also take place at St Dennis Community Fire Station next Wednesday at the same times.
