Thought about becoming an On-Call Firefighter?

On-call firefighters are skilled people from all walks of life who provide cover at on-call fire stations.  There are 10 on-call fire stations across West Yorkshire and the staff are required to live and/or work within five minutes of the station.  Firefighters submit the hours they are available each week and respond to emergency calls as part of a highly motivated team, working on the front line protecting their communities.


This role requires determination, self-motivation and above all, a desire to serve the community in which the firefighters live and/or work.
