Description

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service are proud to have a fleet of vintage fire appliances including an 1870's Shand Mason steamer, four pumps dating from 1938-1955 along with an original horse drawn manual pump and a V8 Safari Land Rover.

As a Heritage Team volunteer you get to drive and display all of these machines (dependent on licence limitations), you don't necessarily have to hold an LGV licence although it would be great if you have one.

Other duties include:

  • Maintenance
  • Polishing (there's lots of brass) and restoration

We do all this to conserve these vehicles for future generations to enjoy

The heritage team and vehicles represent Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service in Promotional campaigns and have appeared in television drama productions such as BBC's WPC 56 and ITV'S Grantchester.

Volunteer uniform is provided along with travel expenses.  This role will require a DBS check.  Availability of this service is Summer - Weekends 6am-6pm Winter - Monday - Friday sporadic events

Locations are dependent on which fire station the vehicle is stored.  Vehicles are housed in Fire Stations throughout West Cheshire.
Volunteers must be over 18.  Mileage is paid to volunteers.  Access to training.  Volunteers with severe disabilities or limited mobility might not be able to access the historic vehicles or show sites.
