Derbyshire Fire Service is looking to recruit a new batch of on-call firefighters at several stations across the county, including Clowne and Bolsover.

On-call firefighters are members of the community who are paid to respond to a variety of emergencies, dealing with anything from floods to road traffic collisions; they also inform our community about fire safety and prevention.

They are notified of an emergency call via a personal pager, which they carry with them when they are on duty.

Anyone interested needs to be aged 17 ½ years or over, be able to attend the drill night on station on the allocated night each week and be available one call for 60-120 hours per week.
