Who can be an on call firefighter?
- On call firefighters come from all walks of life. We have plumbers, IT consultants, florists and financial advisers to name but a few.
- On call firefighters have to pass a physical fitness test to make sure they can do the job safely and effectively. They don't need to be superhuman, but do need to have a good level of fitness.
- On call firefighters need to be over 18. There is no upper age limit for applicants and no compulsory retirement age.
