Retained Recruitment Roadshows

To support our current retained recruitment campaign we are offering potential candidates the opportunity to come along and find out more about becoming a retained firefighter.

Those attending will get the opportunity to chat to retained firefighters about their roles and take part in some ‘have-a-go’ activities.

Retained Roadshow:  Drop-in at Drill Night

We have organised some additional evening sessions for those interested in becoming a retained firefighter, pop along to a drill-night and talk to the crew working at that station about their experiences and what’s involved.

Retained firefighters are members of the community who are paid to provide an on-call service responding to emergency calls in the same way as full-time firefighters, using the same appliances and equipment, but who are ‘on call’ rather than at a fire station.

Retained firefighters have to respond and arrive within five minutes of the station during their hours of declared availability. They respond via a pager system. No previous experience is required as comprehensive training is provided.
