If you want to be a volunteer you need to go through a security check and a medical test. You need to live and work in the area. There is also a selection process that you must go through.

You must be at least 16 years old and you can wear contact lenses but not glasses.

You need to have a good level of fitness and if you have bad asthma you can't fight in fires.

The training involves a 7 day recruitment course and a first aid course for a day. There's a 2 day Breathing Apparatus course and weekly training nights.

You would get a temporary uniform until the courses are completed.
