Kingsville to host Women On Fire recruiting event

A recruiting event for women seeking careers as first responders will take place next weekend in Kingsville.

The Town of Kingsville and Kingsville Fire are hosting the fourth annual Women On Fire, on Saturday, June 22, at the Grovedale Arts and Culture Centre on Park Street.

"The goal of the event is to generate an interest in an emergency or security services career for women, and to promote diversity within our local organizations to better serve and connect with our communities across Windsor-Essex County," read a release from organizers.

These jobs include positions at area police services, fire departments, EMS, the Canada Border Services Agency, the Canadian Armed Forces, and Correctional Services Canada.

Women 18 and older will have a chance to try out components of each organization's physical testing, network with women working in the field, and ask questions.

St. Clair College will also be on-site to provide information on related programs of study.

Participants must wear appropriate attire including footwear, and will be required to sign a waiver and provide proof of age at the time of sign-in.

Three sessions are available on Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The cost is $5 per person and space is limited. Registration is required online at the Town of Kingsville's website.

More information on the event can be found on its official Facebook page.
