Central Scotland Fire & Rescue

Retained Firefighters

Retained Firefighters
Our retained firefighters provide a vital service to the communities in which they live, providing cover to smaller or rural towns within Central Scotland. Retained firefighters are not based in a fire station but may be at home or out working. But when the call comes to their pager, a retained firefighter must stop what they are doing and respond to the station quickly and safely.

To be a retained firefighter, you need to work or live near a fire station, because you have to be able to get there within 5 minutes of a call. You will have to be flexible as you do not know when you will have to attend calls and you will have to consider what impact being 'on call' for a maximum of 120 hours per week will have on your life.

You get paid a basic retainer, a fee for call outs and another for the hours spent in action. You get paid for your weekly training night and duties like equipment maintenance.

Apart from the challenges and satisfaction of a job well done, this work gives you the chance to work as part of a friendly team. You'll learn new skills, whether it's rescue work or preventative fire safety work, helping you become more self-reliant and confident.
