Retained Firefighters Recruitment

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.

Retained firefighters often have another job. Rather than being based at a fire station, retained firefighters 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 five minutes travel time from the station.

Colne 1 x day cover or part day cover. alternate weekends (0600-1400/1400-2200) 1 x night cover and alternate weeknds
