THREE local Avon Fire & Rescue Service recruits recently graduated as on-call firefighters.

Firefighter Griffiths will be posted at Bath Fire Station, Firefighter Davis at Radstock and Firefighter Veater serves at Blagdon.

The course provides new on-call firefighters with specialist knowledge and a wide range of practical skills including tactical firefighting, road traffic collision safety and water safety and rescue.

Group Manager Russ Mitchell said: “It was a pleasure to attend the graduation of our newest on-call firefighters and welcome them into our Service.”

The recruits have now been posted to their local stations and will be paged to respond to incidents from their homes and places of work.
