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 within five minutes travel time from the station.
WE ENCOURAGE ALL APPLICANTS TO ATTEND THEIR STATIONS DRILL NIGHT (see below) TO DISCUSS SUITABLE HOURS OF COVER AND DISTANCE TO STATION BEFORE COMPLETING AN APPLICATION.
(PLEASE NOTE ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE SIGNED BY THE WATCH/STATION MANAGER ON PAGE 1 FOLLOWING A MEETING WITH THEM COVERING A NUMBER OF AREAS, OTHERWISE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED)
