“It gives back to the community – 80% of our employees here are from the Colne Valley so it’s a positive thing to let them keep the local area safe. The other positive is for the employee themselves- not everyone is motivated by money so this is a great way of getting employees to feel more fulfilled. The employee then gives you tenfold back in terms of their skills and commitment.”

How it works for them:
As and when required two of our employees go out to emergency calls in the local area. It doesn’t have a great deal of impact on us- they get called out on average around once a week. As long as you have an understanding between staff and employers and WYFRS it’s a really positive thing to encourage them to do.
