Have a go at being an on-call firefighter

Want to find out what it’s like to be an on-call firefighter?

Are you interested in joining our team of on-call firefighters? Live or work within five minutes of a fire station and would like to serve your local community? Then book one of our taster sessions at our ‘have a go days’ and find out if it would be for you.

You will get the opportunity to have a chat with experienced on-call firefighters. Have the chance to try out practical assessments such as ladder climbing, hose running and putting on breathing apparatus, and learn more about the recruitment process.
