Availability to respond

As a Service, we want all of our fire stations to have available crewing 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

On-call firefighters commit to being available for a given number of hours. They carry alerters and then go to their fire station when called – this can be from home or from work.

Some firefighters are able to be on-call for fixed hours each week, whilst others provide variable cover around the shifts they work for another employer or to suit their other commitments, such as childcare responsibilities.

When you apply to become an on-call firefighter, we will need to check that the hours you can offer will meet the needs of your local station.

To ensure that all of our firefighters can achieve and maintain their operational competence, we expect a commitment of at least 48 hours of availability per week. Similarly, to allow everyone to maintain a work-life balance, we do not encourage anyone to offer more than 120 hours of cover per week.

We often have lower levels of availability on weekdays so, if you can offer any cover between 8am and 6pm on Mondays to Fridays, your application is likely to be of interest when your local station is recruiting.

Our on-call staff is made up of a wide variety of men and women across all age groups and from many different walks of life. If you can offer availability during advertised hours, and believe that you can meet all of our entry requirements, we’d love to hear from you.

If you are currently employed, we will need your employer’s consent for you to become an on-call firefighter, regardless of whether you intend to be available during working hours.
