Comox Fire Rescue is seeking a few new paid on-call members to fill vacancies in its membership.
New recruits would start in the fall. This opportunity is open to both males and females between the ages of 18 and 50.
The fire department is particularly interested in persons who work close to the Comox Fire Station and are available to respond to emergencies during the daytime (at least a couple of days per week).
Ideal applicants should be dedicated, hard-working, team players who are willing to be challenged. Applicants must be physically fit and available to attend Tuesday evening training sessions on a regular basis.
Work conditions include hard work, unusual hours, bad weather, extreme temperatures, low pay and occasional high stress. Rewards are many and include new skills and great training, new friends, adventure, satisfaction, teamwork, confidence, pride, some pay and many other benefits.
Chief Gord Schreiner states: ”Using a system of volunteer, paid-on-call, and career members the fire department provides a variety of important services, at very reasonable costs to thousands of citizens.”
Persons interested in applying should drop by the fire station to pick up an application or contact Schreiner or assistant chief Rick Shelton at 250-339-2432 or e-mail email@example.com.
Other local fire departments may also be looking for new members.
Contact your local fire department for more information.
