Imagine the scene. It's 3am and you and your family have just lost everything you own in a house fire? The fire service have put the fire out, but now you face the daunting task of rebuilding your lives. Where do you start? Where do you go?

The British Red Cross Fire and Emergency Support Service exists to help people who have been affected by a fire, flood or other emergency at home. Whether it's helping to find temporary acommodation following a fire, advising on damage restoration after a flood, or providing hot drinks during a power cut, our volunteers are there when people need them most.

Our new Fire and Emergency Support Unit for Gloucestershire, which will be based at Gloucester South Fire Station in Tuffley, is looking for volunteers to provide practical and emotional support during emergencies. With a flexible shift pattern on our 24/7 rota, full training and equipment are provided, and volunteers will feel that they are really making a difference to people's lives.

For more information about volunteering with the Fire and Emergency Support Service, contact Dan Spencer at the British Red Cross - wag_fess@redcross.org.uk or 07921 872375.
