Where, when and how often?

The role is flexible and will respond to local requests to provide community safety information talks to a range of organisations including schools, community groups and church groups.


How will this role make a difference to my community?

This role will support NIFRS in providing fire safety messages to local communities.

What will I be doing?

You will be:

* attending events and awareness sessions to promote safety and wellbeing; and

* building links between community organisations and NIFRS to promote the services which NIFRS offers.


Is this role for me?

This role will suit you if you:

* have the ability to work well within a team and to follow instructions;

* have good communication skills;

* have good organisational skills;
