Consider becoming a retained firefighter

Hub Business SupportersFree Membership

Warwickshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service are urging local businesses to step up to the challenge and think about releasing a member of their staff to become a retained firefighter.
Currently, there are over 100 retained firefighters in Warwickshire, responding to the call to keep our communities safe. However, many more are needed, to provide cover at our retained stations during the day, nights and weekends.
No previous experience is needed, but common sense, self-motivation, compassion and the ability to work as part of a team is essential. Any potential candidates must also live or work within five minutes travel time of their nearest fire station and be over 18.
For more information on what it could mean for your business, then log onto or call the retained recruitment team on 01926 852223 for an initial chat.
Full details about being a retained firefighter can be found at
