SkillZONE will be staffed by existing fire service staff and the volunteer guides are being recruited only to guide groups around the scenarios and to encourage visitors to identify dangers and actions to reduce the risk.
Tim Lanfear, Station Commander for Skills for Life said: â€œAs a volunteer you will be a highly valued member of the SkillZONE team and will be key to the development of the centre.
â€œIt is also a fantastic opportunity to gain work experience and learn some valuable skills.
â€œIf you would like to find out more about becoming a volunteer please come along to the information stand on 7th June.â€
