Lancashire's fire service is looking for people who want to take on a new career as an on-call firefighter.

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service is looking to employ people from all walks of life, from self-employed tradespeople and stay-at-home parents to employees of small businesses and large, well-known organisations.

Working as an on-call firefighter means being involved in a wide range of activities in your local area, from responding to emergency calls to carrying out work in local communities to support their needs or providing prevention advice to help keep them safe.

In return, the fire service can offer flexibility around study, work, and family commitments, first class training and development opportunities and a chance to make a difference in your local community.

Recruitment opened on Monday October 16 for training courses beginning in February 2024.
