BURNING DESIRE TO HELP?

Protect your local community – become a On-Call Firefighter

On-Call 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 employed full-time and based at a fire station.

On-Call firefighters have to respond and arrive within five minutes of the station (see Your Area for list of stations) during their hours of declared availability. They respond via a pager system. No previous experience is required as comprehensive training is provided.

To apply to be an On-Call Firefighter you must:

  • Live within, and be able to respond and arrive within 5 minutes of the Fire Station
  • Provide cover on a rotational call-out basis to the Fire Station you will be situated at
  • Be 18 years old at the start of the training course
  • Have a good all round level of fitness
  • Meet Fire & Rescue Services medical standards (eyesight, colour vision, hearing, lung function)
  • Be eligible to work in the UK

It’s desirable for you to:

  • Hold a full UK car driving licence
  • Hold an LGV driving licence

Please note a candidate may not be currently employed as a warranted Police Officer.
