Firefighters make a vital contribution to the safety of their community. Becoming a Firefighter provides you with a worthwhile and rewarding role, serving the local community. It is also an opportunity to work as part of a team, receive excellent training and gain a wide range of skills.
Firefighting is not like any other job, it can be unpredictable, exciting and rewarding. Firefighters do not just respond courageously to emergencies. They are involved in community education, fire and accident prevention activities all designed to protect the local community.
Our service is made up of 830 Wholetime Firefighters and 882 On-Call Firefighters.
“This is a sometimes challenging, but hugely rewarding career and from their first day on station Firefighters will respond to help people when they are at their most vulnerable and most in need of help. We do this work to the very best of our ability, always putting our service before ourselves.”
Chief Fire & Rescue Officer
