They receive an annual wage to reflect the time they commit to being available plus additional payments for certain activities. They are expected to undertake and attend training at least once per week.

On-call firefighters are men and women who may have other jobs and are able to provide evening, daytime or weekend availability "on-call" cover. We need people who can be available for at least 50 hours a week, a minimum of 30 hours which must be predetermined.

On-call firefighters are a vital part of today's fire and rescue service. They provide an efficient, effective service that gives emergency cover to more than 90 per cent of the UK.

Basic requirements:

  • Minimum age 18 years
  • Good level of all round fitness
  • Work or live within five minutes travelling time of an on-call fire station
  • Be available at the times when the local station needs cover
