Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service


Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service involves volunteers through a number of opportunities:

Community Volunteers

Our Community Volunteers support community based fire safety education operating predominately across the associated Council areas to help NIFRS reduce the number of accidental house fires and therefore help reduce fire deaths and injuries.

Volunteers provide fire safety advice at community initiatives such as community events or distribute fire safety leaflets in their local communities, complementing the work of our Firefighters.

NIFRS Volunteers are welcome from all backgrounds and walks of life to support NIFRS in its work to keep people safe from the dangers of fire.

If you would like to make a difference to your community, meet new people, develop new skills and have an enjoyable experience, contact the Volunteer Coordinator , Julie Rea –
