We are currently recruiting for Retained Firefighters for the following stations:

Lancaster, Morecambe, Bolton-Le-Sands, Carnforth, Silverdale, Hornby, Garstang, Fleetwood, Preesall, Wesham, Lytham, St Annes, Bacup, Rawtenstall, Haslingden, Padiham, Nelson, Barnoldswick, Earby, Colne, Longridge, Clitheroe, Hyndburn, Great Harwood, Darwen, Chorley, Bamber Bridge, Ormskirk, Skelmersdale and Tarleton.

The closing date for application forms to be received is Friday 18 August 2017.            

Retained Firefighters often have another job and will provide on-call cover from home or their place of work.  They respond to emergencies when their pager alerts them, so must live or work within 5 minutes travel time from the station.

We generally require retained firefighters to give between 60-120 hours per week.  Patterns and hours of cover vary from station to station.  Our biggest requirement is for day time cover Monday – Friday 0600-1800 and 24 hours across Saturday and Sunday.

It is essential that you attend your fire station's drill night (see below), to discuss suitable hours of cover and your distance to the station.  Once you have completed an application form the Station or Watch Manager needs to sign the form before returning to the address stated on the form.
