Have-a-go at being a firefighter Dec 9 2018

Kempston Fire Station is offering a chance for those people who have never considered a career as a firefighter to come along and “Have a Go”.

The day kicks off at 10:00 sharp with a brief and form filling. You will then receive your personal protective equipment (PPE) and undergo a warm up before you try your hand at a variety of events including: ladder climb, equipment carry, jenga, breathing apparatus (BA) and using the hose. Once everyone has Had a Go you will then hand back your PPE and be given a talk regarding on-call and wholetime firefighter career paths where we will answer all the questions you may have regarding this fulfilling career.

Register here to attend. Please provide us with your name and contact details.

Could you please wear sports clothes to the event (check the weather beforehand and if its going to be hot, please wear shorts and a t-shirt), long hair needs to be tied back and you need to bring a water bottle along with you.

Over 18s only, however, if you are 17 and would like to come along and observe please email OperationalVacancies@bedsfire.com .
