Become a retained (on-call) firefighter

29 January 2020

Could you support your community while learning new skills, earning extra money and gaining some valuable lifesaving training?

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is on the lookout for retained (on-call) firefighters across the county particularly in the following areas: East Grinstead, Turners Hill, Hurstpierpoint, Shoreham, Storrington, Petworth, Arundel and East Wittering.

From fires and road traffic collisions to flooding and community prevention work – you’ll be playing a huge part in one of our emergency services.

Retained firefighters respond from work or home but must be in close proximity whilst on-call.

Fourteen of the County’s 25 fire stations are crewed solely by a retained (on-call) workforce.

So, think you could become part of the team and keep the people of West Sussex safe?
