In the meantime, please follow the provided links on this site for your information.

The role of a modern day firefighter is very broad based, requiring a range of skills which will challenge you in more ways than you may imagine.

Having the confidence to work with schools to educate young people in fire prevention, fit smoke alarms in people's houses and talk to diverse communities, is as important as your ability to deal effectively with an emergency situation.

Firefighters need to be people who not only reflect our communities but also want to put something back into those communities. We are particularly interested in hearing from women and people from minority ethnic groups.
