This month our Career of the Month is Firefighters.
You’ll work for a fire and rescue service run by your local area or county, overseen by a fire and rescue authority. Your work will be a mix of fire station duties, fire prevention and dealing with emergencies.
Every day will be different, but could include:
•inspecting and maintaining equipment
•carrying out practice drills and taking part in training
•rescuing people and animals from burning buildings and accident sites •controlling and putting out fires
•dealing with bomb alerts and floods
•managing chemical or hazardous substance spills
•giving presentations to schools and community groups
•inspecting buildings to make sure they meet fire safety regulations
