Opportunity image

When there is a fire, flood or severe weather, we’re among the first to respond. From making a cup of tea to trekking through snow and sleet to deliver the essentials, we work with other organisations to do what’s needed straight away.

We are looking to recruit volunteers from across the Moray area eg Fochabers, Lossiemouth, Burghhead, Forres, Brodie, Rothes and Craigellachie.

This service operates 24/7 and is staffed by volunteers on an on call rota

To be a part of this Emergency Response Service, we are looking volunteers who:

Can get to Elgin Fire Station, IV30 1NL within 30 minutes.

Can be on call for 2 x 12 hours a month.

Can attend monthly training sessions in Elgin.

Can ideally drive and have held a driving licence for at least 2 years with access to a vehicle.

There is the opportunity to progress to a lead volunteer within a year subject to commitment, skills and undertaking relevant training.
