Applications open for on-call firefighters in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is excited to announce that from Monday 30 January, it is taking applications for on-call firefighters at all of Nottinghamshire’s on-call fire stations, except Hucknall.

If you live or work near an on-call fire station, then this could be your new role.

Station Manager Simon Glew said “on-call firefighters are a vital part of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. They provide an efficient, effective service that gives emergency cover across the county, trained to the same standard as our full-time colleagues.

“In Nottinghamshire, on-call firefighters make up 38% of our operational firefighters and are generally located in rural communities, small towns, and villages.

“I’d encourage anyone to apply, even if you’ve never considered a job as a firefighter. Our on-call firefighters get a huge sense of belonging and local recognition, not only from attending incidents but also from the community outreach work.”
