Retained Appliance Availability

Retained firefighters provide an agreed level of 'on-call' cover for emergencies via a pager system. Maintaining retained resources is an on-going issue nationally, particularly in rural areas where people often leave their home village or town to work elsewhere.

We are embarking on a significant recruitment drive and area always keen to hear from potential recruits.
