Fourteen new recruits, including some from Chatteris, Ely, Whittlesey and Manea have graduated as on-call firefighters for Cambridgeshire.

The latest batch of on-call recruits passed out on Sunday (March 26) after three months of training at Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Training Centre.

Aaron Dunmore, 20, a floor screeder who enjoys football, the gym and greyhound racing, joins Whittlesey Fire Station.

Steve White, a 24-year-old scientist who likes outdoor activities and motorsports joins Chatteris Fire Station.

Electrical services manager Chris Cornell, 43, joins Cottenham Fire Station and chef Mark Minns, 26, joins Manea Fire Station.

Ely Fire Station gains two on-call firefighters: Paul Hudson, 31, a furniture manufacturer who likes fitness and football coaching, and Nick Lake, 41, a services project manager who outside of work enjoys watersports, camping and outdoor activities.

Group Commander Simon Newton, who presented the recruits with their certificates at the pass-out parade, said: “I am always humbled by the commitment and sacrifice made by our on-call staff to provide essential emergency cover to their local communities.”
