Be a Fire Service community volunteer


West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service needs Community Volunteers in Worthing.

The scheme recruits volunteers from the local community to help deliver the Fire Service’s life-saving Home Fire Safety Check service.

Following full training, the volunteers arrange and carry out Home Fire Safety Checks for residents in the Worthing area as well as a whole range of community safety activities.

The Community Volunteer scheme is open to anyone over the age of 16 who can commit to a minimum of eight hours volunteering each month.

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service Volunteer Manager, Emma Francis, explained: “Our Community Volunteers provide a really vital service for the people living in their local area.  Home Fire Safety Checks are the cornerstone of our community fire safety activity and have protected thousands of people over the last ten years. If you have a few hours to spare, then why not consider volunteering for the Fire Service.  Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to help save lives?”

“Ideally we are looking for people with good communication skills who have a passion for helping people within their local community.  For the right candidates we offer full training, the opportunity to learn new skills and the chance to be part of a close-knit team who are dedicated to saving lives.”
