Worthing on standby at Henfield
An illustration of why West Sussex Fire & Rescue is currently undertaking a retained recruitment champagne involving posters, videos, twitter chats, plus a "have a go" day at Horsham. On Saturday afternoon October 31st 2015 Worthings 2nd full time crewed WTL (51P2), HX06 GMO a Scania P270/CP31/CAFS/JDC sits outside Henfield Fire station whilst on standby due to a shortage of retained cover in the midst of the county. Waiting in Henfields single bay is Dennis Sabre/JDC HX04 WGG, and to add to the excitement for Dennis fans in the rear drill yard was Dennis Rapier R335 SPO, still used by the cadets scheme. So if you live or work near one of West Sussex retained crewed stations now is a good time to apply..sadly now I live in Somerset I am a bit more than 4 minutes away from any of them!
Nice to see 51P2 is wearing a Poppy.
