Today we congratulate and welcome 11 On-Call firefighters to the Humberside Fire family.
In celebration of the successful completion of 8 weeks of hard work, our third On-Call Recruits Course from 2022, had the opportunity to showcase their firefighting and life-saving in front of family and friends.
Phil Shillito, Chief Fire Officer, said: “Every firefighter plays a vital role in keeping our communities and each other safe. The pride and satisfaction in serving the community and being part of this incredible team cannot be underestimated.
