Recruitment Drive – Sunday 29th December

December 22, 2018 in General

Come and meet our people during our recruitment drive to be held at the EFRU Headquarters and training school on Saturday 29th December. This is being organised as part of a project funded by the #SIS (Small Initiatives Scheme).

EFRU’s volunteers are dedicated people who constantly train to save lives. They are committed individuals who love working in a team environment and who take pride in helping others.

For this reason we are holding a recruitment drive in conjunction with the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector during the ‘Voluntary Organisations Fair’ to create more awareness about our team and the work it does within the local community as well as on an international platform through Evolsar.

The EFRU committee takes recruitment very seriously and is committed to find competent individuals who are carefully evaluated by means of an interview. Furthermore the applicant is made aware of the work EFRU conducts within the local community and beyond, such that the applicant can evaluate the commitment required and what is expected from an EFRU volunteer. As one might presume, the scenarios that our people prepare themselves for, are not for the faint-hearted, so any volunteer needs to attend training periodically to attain and maintain the rescuer’s preparedness. Untrained persons present an elevated risk during an operation and would be a liability to the rest of the team.

Training for EFRU recruits, kicks off with Basic Rescue and First Aid. The EFRU is able to offer all the training necessary in both disciplines internally. After mastering knots, ladder work, casualty handling, basic firefighting and all the other subjects that form the Basic Rescue Course, an EFRU volunteer will be introduced to the more advanced disciplines of rope, fire and USAR (Urban, Search & Rescue).


If interested in forming part of our family of volunteers to save lives, please join us in Shipwright Wharf, Paola on the 29th of December @ 1400hrs. We look forward to meeting you 🙂
