Essex County Fire & Rescue

ECFRS Volunteer Opportunities


Location: Essex

Essex County Fire & Rescue Service is committed to ensuring that Essex is a safe place to live, work and travel through. Community Volunteers deliver a wide range of community safety advice and services throughout the County.

The Service's volunteer roles are varied and can be adapted to the skills you have as well as the time you have available. Full training and support will be provided. You will not be out of pocket if you become a volunteer as travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Volunteers will be covered by the Service Health and Safety and Insurance policies whilst undertaking volunteering tasks. However, to ensure appropriate cover is provided volunteers must ensure role guidelines are followed as detailed by the Volunteer Manager. Appropriate Service Volunteer uniform and identification will be provided and must be worn at all times when volunteering.

Volunteers are expected to have the same high level of integrity and commitment that is required of all Essex County Fire & Rescue Service staff. Volunteers will be provided with an agreement outlining the expected standards of behaviours and code of conduct. As part of our duty of care to all of our volunteers you will also be required to complete a medical health form.

Volunteers must be legally entitled to work in the UK and be over the age of 16 to apply. Please note that some activities will require volunteers to be over the age of 18.

All information about you will be kept confidential.

If you would like to apply, please complete the application form attached and return by email to or by post to:
