Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service are celebrating International Women’s Day this week at Bedford Community Fire Station in Barkers Lane offering women the chance to don a full fire kit and take part in a number of activities.
The day will run from 10am until 3pm and you can have a go at climbing a 13.5m ladder, try out breathing aparatus, learn how to carry equipment and deal with casualties, and assemble and take apart equipment.
The day will include a talk outlining the recruitment process for both whole-time and on-call (RDS) firefighters.
If you are interested in attending contact [email protected] for more information.
