Apply to be an on-call firefighter

Advice for employers

We ask our on-call staff to ensure that their primary employers are a priority.

On-call firefighters must attend the fire station within five minutes of receiving a call. We appreciate the disruption that this can have on your business.

We aim to ensure that everyone is fully aware of their commitment. We will work with business owners to find the best approach to any staffing concerns.

Benefits to you as an employer

On-call firefighters receive the same training opportunities as their wholetime colleagues.

This means they may be able to help you with:

  • trauma training
  • health and safety training
  • driving large goods vehicles
  • emergency situations

Supporting your staff and the community can enhance the reputation of your business too.
