Wholetime Duty System Firefighter
Are you serious about fire safety and able to demonstrate the skills relevant to being a modern day Firefighter? Then read on….
The Fire and Rescue Service has changed considerably over the last few years and the role of Firefighter has adapted to reflect this, and to meet the demands from the local community.
The modern Firefighter still fulfils the traditional duties of responding to fires and Special Service Calls e.g. road traffic collisions, chemical emergencies, flooding and other natural disasters. However, the modern Firefighter is also able to switch from this reactive role, to a more preventative role involving educating our communities.
Firefighters need to be able to communicate with all groups within the community but especially those ‘at risk’, such as the elderly and children. As well as communicating through talks, demonstrations and presentations, our Firefighters visit the people we serve at home, often involving a Safe and Well visit, to ensure they know how to keep themselves safe from fire and what to do in case of an emergency.
South Wales Fire and Rescue Service welcomes applicants from all backgrounds and details of any future Wholetime Duty System campaigns will be advertised on this page.
This October 2019 we are recruiting Wholetime Firefighters to start in 2020.
