Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service

With around 1,050 staff based across our operations, there are many interesting career opportunities here at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service. Many still think our job is all about riding around in fire engines and fighting fires. However, the truth is our work is much more varied than that.

A firefighter can expect to not only fight fires but to also attend road traffic collisions, provide assistance with flooding and rescue both people and animals. Equally important is the proactive approach to community safety – explaining the risks of fire, fitting smoke alarms and preventing fires and accidents from happening in the first place.

Today’s firefighters also give advice to businesses, risk assess properties and help people to plan escape routes. They raise awareness throughout schools and teach about the dangers of playing with fire. They encourage fire safety initiatives and inspect buildings to make sure they meet fire safety regulations. A firefighter is at the heart of the community.

Control room operators and support staff also play a vital role. Control room operators take all emergency calls and work under extreme pressure to ensure the right the people and vehicles are sent to the right place to deal with incidents. Support staff deal with the essential day-to-day running of our operations.
