Fire and emergency support service volunteering
Could you volunteer and help people in their time of need?
Fire and emergency support service (FESS) volunteers provide much-needed assistance to people who have suddenly found themselves homeless following a fire, evacuation, industrial accident or flood.
Can you communicate effectively with people of different ages, physical and psychological needs and varying backgrounds that are faced with a difficult and stressful situation?
As a FESS volunteer you could make a difference in your community by:
- Helping evacuated families find temporary accommodation
- Providing practical help and emotional support to distressed people
- Signposting people to other organisations and agencies that will help.
Without volunteers this service would not be able to give people the help they need in a crisis. Could you generously give up your time to help others?
There may be volunteering opportunities that fit your schedule, and a volunteering manager can discuss how much time you are able to give.
Training and support is provided.
