Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service are currently running a community champion scheme to spread fire safety messages and encourage residents to carry out safety checks on their homes.
Existing volunteers work across the county and more are currently required.
Community champions speak to local communities about home fire safety and escape plans, as well as referring those people who do not feel confident about undertaking a check of their own home.
They may also be asked to complement the service already being delivered by attending community events and providing support, as well as being part of our consultation community.
Community champions participate in training that enable them to develop interpersonal skills, enhance their experience, make new friends and improve their knowledge of the work undertaken by the Fire and Rescue Service.
No previous qualifications or specific skills are needed to become a community champion as the Fire and Rescue Service is always seeking people from diverse backgrounds.
The scheme is run by the charity Groundwork Cambridgeshire & Peterborough on behalf of the Fire and Rescue Service.
