The Kilchoan Fire Service Needs You!
In those days the brigade always had a full complement. Today it's down to seven of a team of ten, one of whom is off on short-term sick leave. Since they must have four of the team present to respond to a callout, it isn't surprising that they haven't been able to attend some recent emergencies.
The team is desperate to recruit new members, and the community needs a fire brigade. There are posters up on local noticeboards, or you can go on the Fire Brigade website here where there are details about how to apply to become a retained firefighter.
Retained firefighters have an annual salary of between £2k and £3k, and are paid for attendance at training and for callouts - more details of remuneration and conditions of service here.
