EAST Cambridgeshire residents Lee Russell, Kier Porter and Gary Rosser are all set to start saving lives after passing out as on-call firefighters.
The newly trained recruits will be working for Cambridgeshire Fire and
Rescue Service carrying out life-saving work as part of on-call crews in their villages and communities.
New recruit Lee Russell is 23 and from Ely, Gary Rosser, is 21 and from Sutton and Kiel Porter is 28 and from Soham.
The on-call firefighters are trained professionals who save lives in their communities alongside their day-to-day lives. They may be at home or work when they receive a pager alert and straight away they must jump into action and get ready to deal with any incident.
