Member Development Session – Warwickshire Fire & Rescue

On 4 July 2017 members were invited to Rugby Fire Station as part of the induction programme; which has been developed to ensure that members have the skills and knowledge required to be effective in their role.

The itinerary included welcome and introductions from the Portfolio Holder for Fire & Community Safety, Councillor Howard Roberts and Chief Fire Officer Andy Hickmott. There were presentations from Deputy Chief Fire Officer Rob Moyney and Programme Manager Ade Mallaban – which introduced members to the Fire Service, their responsibilities and priorities as well as the overall vision for staff.

Members were then given the chance to see some of the equipment used by firefighters including heavy duty cutters for road traffic collisions and boats for water rescues. There was also a demonstration by the Animal Rescue Team who showcased the equipment and skills they have for large animal rescue call outs.

There was a chance for members to see the wide range of prevention work that the Fire Service does – from visits to schools, home safety advice and arson prevention, to the work done with bikers and university students.

This event was well received by the members and gave a valuable insight into the various roles that Warwickshire fire and Rescue provide for our local communities

First time voters – County Council Elections 4 May 2017

If you were born 3rd May 1994 you just missed out on being able to vote in the County Council Elections in 2013.

  • You just missed out on having the opportunity to make a difference in your local area.
  • You just missed out on being able to make your voice count on matters that are important to you.
  • You just missed out on taking part in a vote that makes a real difference.

But this year, if you are registered to vote, you won’t miss out again

Are you registered to vote?
If you are then would you like the opportunity to earn some extra money?

If you have ever voted in an election you will have come across the staff that help throughout the whole day – have you ever considered working at a Polling Station as a Poll Clerk?

Poll Clerks help the Presiding Officer set up polling booths: check and mark each person as they vote; stamp and issue ballot papers to voters, making sure they bear the official mark; ensure that voters cast their votes in secret; answer any questions in a friendly and professional way; show people how to vote; and maintain the secrecy and security of the ballot.

It is a long day, usually from 6.30am until at least 10pm when the voting finishes but you could earn at least £100.  It is worth noting that after two or three years’ experience as a poll clerk you can then apply to be a Presiding Officer which means more money.

Don’t leave it until a week before the election to apply to your local Elections and Registration Office, the positions will probably already be filled.  Give them a call or send an email telling them you are interested.  A training session is offered before Election Day.

If you would like more information please contact Helen at Democratic Services, Warwickshire County Council.

Why Should I Vote?

By voting on May 4th 2017, you get to have a say about what goes on in Warwickshire, who makes decisions on your behalf and who will represent your views throughout the County.

Councillors are elected to represent local residents – and you can vote for the person who you think will represent you the best.

Every vote counts so if you don’t vote then the person you want will have less chance of getting elected.  Someone will be elected whether you vote or not.  By registering to vote you can give your voice to the process.

How do I vote?

You’ll receive a polling card which will tell you where to go on Election Day. Take the card along to your polling station any time between 7am -10pm to cast your vote.

BUT

If you don’t register, you can’t vote.

If you’re not yet registered to vote go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote  and fill in your details.

Make sure you do this before 5pm on Thursday 13th April 2017

 

If you don’t register then you won’t be able to vote
