Van driver Adrian Watson and factory worker Matthew Wilson are the latest duo to pass out as on-call firefighters in Fenland.

Keen football players Adrian, 29, and Matthew, 21, are two of seven new recruits who completed their training with Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service this week.

They will join the crew at March fire station.

On-call firefighters are trained professionals who respond to emergencies in their communities alongside their day-to-day lives.

They may be at home, work or out and about when they receive a pager alert and straight away they must jump into action and get ready to deal with any incident.

The new recruits are now on-call after completing three months of training at the service’s training centre, in Huntingdon.

On-call firefighters have to be aged 18 and over, have a good level of all-round fitness and live or work within five minutes travelling time of an on-call fire station.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting on-call firefighters. To find out more call 01480 444500.
