South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue

Being a Firefighter is an interesting, varied and fulfilling career. In addition to safety critical training we can offer a wide range of specialist and general training opportunities to contribute to your personal development and career aspirations.
Our service is focusing more and more on prevention and protection work so that we can continue to reduce the number and impact of incidents in South Yorkshire. A major part of a Firefighter’s role is in contributing to this.
Our Firefighters spend a lot of their time out in the community delivering fire prevention advice and other safety messages. Additionally, they visit homes and talk to people about how they can plan to avoid and survive a fire if it occurs. This involves conducting home fire safety checks and fitting smoke alarms.
You will gain valuable experience and skills, improving their capabilities and assisting their applications for future, paid employment.
