Ever seen a firetruck flying by with its sirens and lights on and wondered if firefighting would be for you?

Well here’s your chance to find out.

A special information session will be held Tuesday night (September 27) at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Sooke Municipal Hall for any prospective recruits looking to get additional info on what Sooke Fire and Rescue does and how the volunteer firefighting program works.

The 45 minute session will discuss the expectations the Sooke Fire Department has from a new recruit, as well as a brief overview of some of the mandatory training and qualifications necessary to become part of the firefighting team.

A question and answer period will also be included at the end of the session.

Spouses and family are encouraged to come as well.
