Get Noticed… Be Somebody… Become a Volunteer

Whenever we talk about the fire service the common image is that of Firefighters fighting fires - however the role of the fire service is far wider than just this.

A large part of our role is working alongside the local communities making homes safe from fire hazards, visiting and speaking to local schools and businesses about fire safety, and supporting and working with children and young people across the region.

Our volunteers, who are better known as CAT (Community Action Team), play a vital role in the success of many of these community initiatives, acting as support to the fire crews and providing a friendly focal point of contact within the community.

If you would like more information about the role of our volunteers take a look through this section. If there's anything else you would like to know we are always happy to hear from you please contact us on 0161 608 9225 (between 9:30 - 5:30).
