Do you want to become an on-call firefighter?

More on-call firefighters are needed at Glossop Fire Station.

On-Call firefighters are members of the community who are paid to respond to emergencies.

They do not staff the fire station 24 hours a day like full-time firefighters on the whole-time duty system. They are notified of an emergency call via a personal pager, which they carry with them when they are on duty.

On-Call firefighters will book themselves available for fire calls and, if a call comes in during the hours they have agreed to be on call, they must reach the fire station within the allocated time usually within five minutes of receiving the pager message.

The crew went to the town’s Tesco store on Sunday to engage with potential new on-call firefighters. 

They are holding a recruitment awareness session on Thursday 3 October at the station at Whitfield Park, from 6pm to 8.30pm. 

Anyone who would like to register their interest in attending the session can visit
