Community Volunteer - Information Support / Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service


 

Community Volunteer – Information Support


Where, when and how often?

The role is local to your area and flexible. 


How will this role make a difference to my community?

This role will support NIFRS in providing fire safety messages to local communities with the aim of reducing the number of accidental fire deaths and injuries in the home and reducing the number of incidents attended by NIFRS. 


What will I be doing?

You will be:

* acting as a community engagement ‘champion’, spreading the word on fire safety amongst members of the public as well as particular target groups (eg, older people, specific neighbourhoods); and

* distributing targeted information (letters, leaflets and posters) to local communities.


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;

* are committed to inclusion, treating people from all backgrounds with dignity;

* know, or are willing to learn, about fire safety; and

* 18 or over.


Reasonable adjustments will be made to support our volunteers to complete their roles.
