WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE

This is a stand-alone website, launched and managed by our own members, although we continue to maintain a close association with Dorset and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.

We have tried to avoid making it unnecessarily complex to use and recognise that it will grow and become a much busier website in time.

This is not intended to replace The Branch newsletter which will continue to be published 2 - 3 monthly and available to view/download/print direct from this website.

Members are encouraged to give feedback using the CONTACT US form.

WHO CAN JOIN

Membership is open to those who have served in any fire service for 5 or more years. Former wholetime, retained and non-uniformed members are eligible to join. Membership is also open to widows and widowers of fire service members.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

The annual subscription falls due on 1st April. The subscription is only £10 and you are sure to find this represents value for money.

Don't delay - join us today

BE FRAUD SMART

Fraudulent or scam emails are on the increase and the criminals behind them are getting cleverer by the day. Some are claiming to be from High Street banks and even HMRC. Whilst some are readily detectable due to poor spelling or grammar, others can appear very convincing.

A bank will never ask you to click on a link contained in an email. If wishing to correspond with them over the internet, do so directly using your internet browser and not via email.

A bank will never ask you to confirm a password or PIN via email or over the phone.
