...partnerships and community working
You don’t have to want to be a firefighter to volunteer! Volunteers come from all walks of life. No matter what your skills and knowledge are, the most important thing is your time and commitment.
We recruit and train volunteers to assist us with meeting the needs of our local communities.
The requirement is not for firefighters. As a volunteer you will make a vital contribution by helping to provide fire safety advice and practical assistance to your community.
Our volunteers make a real difference to their local communities, taking part in projects as wide-ranging as road safety education sessions to working with the equine community in the New Forest.
Although the posts are unpaid, volunteers claim out of pocket expenses such as travel.
To be a volunteer, you need to be at least 18 years old and able to answer “yes” to the following questions:
You will receive comprehensive training and be provided with appropriate clothing. Please note you will not be required to attend operational incidents.
Please take a few minutes to read our 'Volunteers Enrolment pack'; this gives information on our activities and how you can become involved.
At present we only have vacancies in the Test Valley area of Hampshire, however, if you are still interested in applying, please fill in and return the Volunteers enrolment form, and we will keep your application on record and contact you should a vacancy arise.
We look forward to hearing from you.
