Kildare Fire Service Recruiting
Quote:Chance to become a fire-fighter in Co Kildare up for grabs

Co Kildare people interested in joining the fire-services are being encouraged to join a panel that could land them a position in a number of local towns.
Assistant Chief-Fire Officer, Niall O'Riordan, said that due to unforeseen departures and retirements, a new panel now needs to be set up for Athy, Monasterevin, Maynooth and Leixlip.
He said : "It is our intention that we will take on new people."
The positions advertised are for Retained Fire Fighters, which essentially means that the individual will not work from a station. Last year, five new fire officers were recruited in Co Kildare.
Mr O'Riordan said: "They will respond to calls, from wherever they are. The majority of counties operate on this system. There are no promise of any jobs from this, we are forming panels."
A retained fire fighter earns a base of €8,000 annually, which increases on the amount of calls, including training posts. They could earn as much as €25,000 to €35,000 per annum.
Information sessions with respect to these posts will be held in the above fire stations as follows:
Athy: Thursday, 25 February 2016 at 10.00 a.m.-11.00 a.m.
Monasterevin: Thursday, 25 February 2016 at 12.00 a.m.-13.00 a.m.
Maynooth: Friday, 26 February 2016 at 10.00 a.m.-11.00 a.m.
Leixlip: Friday, 26 February 2016 at 11.30 a.m.-12.30 a.m.
