Local emergency services form an important part of any community and on-call Firefighters are a key element to that.
The Service is currently recruiting on-call firefighters to become part of a team ready to face any emergency. This could range from fires, floods and road traffic collisions to chemical spillages and community fire safety activities.
Many on-call Firefighters will already have full or part-time jobs working within their local community, but when the call comes, they have to be ready to go.
Working alongside full-time Firefighters, on-call Firefighters are fully trained to save lives and protect their community. There is a shortage at the moment of people who are able to turn out and help in an emergency, particularly in the south of the county.
Currently we are looking to recruit at the following stations:
- Fenny Compton
- Henley in Arden
To become an on-call firefighter all you need is to be fit and healthy and live or work within 5 minutes the fire station currently recruiting. Because you cannot predict when you will be needed, you have to be flexible and available at short notice.
On average, you will be called out two or three times a week for a couple of hours. You will also be expected to attend weekly drill nights and occasional training courses.
So if you think you’ve got what it takes, this is your chance to prove it!
