My experience with Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service is from my volunteer activities, and what I have observed amongst fulltime colleagues. HFRS is a professional and respectful place to work, where there are no barriers to inclusivity, and there is a positive working environment.

very professional work environment
I would receive a form requesting a home safety visit from a member of the public. Then I woud arrange to see the person and complete the visit. The visit would envolve helping to ensure that I gave advice to reduce the risk of fire and and trips and falls to the household and persons living in the property.
I would also have to attend joint community safety meeting to pass on information to other agencies if there was a risk to the person or property.

The job was very rewarding and satisfying and there was a good work place culture and support for any difficulties that may present themselves while I was working.

You train for so many disasters and never know when that skill may be called upon.But when you get to put that training into practice while others are in panic is such a good feeling.
Pros
Great Team spirit
Cons
working nights and weekends disrupts family life
