On-Call Firefighter


The on call element of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service are fundamental to our community safety and emergency response across the county.

On call firefighters are a group of community-spirited people who live or work within a reasonable response time of their local Community Fire Station and are available to respond to emergencies within their communities and across the county.

On-Call Firefighter

Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service's on-call team are a group of people who, in addition to their normal jobs or careers, are on-call in their free time or respond to emergency calls from their full-time place of employment

Local emergency services form an important part of our community. Firefighters do a whole range of jobs from attending fires to helping at all sorts of incidents. As a member of our on-call fire service team you might be called to floods, road traffic incidents or chemical spills. When an emergency happens, wouldn't you like to be able to help your friends and neighbours in a very real and practical way?

And you'd get paid for doing it too.
