On-call firefighters

Kent Fire and Rescue Service is seeking on-call firefighters. On-call firefighters are a vital part of today's fire and rescue service, providing an efficient, effective service that gives emergency cover to more than 90 per cent of the UK.

On-call firefighters carry a pager and respond to emergency incidents using the local station to respond. They receive an annual wage to reflect the time they commit to being available, plus additional payments for certain activities. They are expected to undertake and attend training.
