Are there vacancies for retained Firefighters at this Station?

Thetford fire station has a Fire Appliance staffed by Day Duty System (DDS) Firefighters. These are Firefighters that are available with the Fire Appliance during normal office hours Monday to Friday, outside of these hours the Fire Appliance is staffed by Firefighters on a Retained Duty System Contract (RDS) there is also another Fire Appliance that is staffed by RDS Firefighters only. RDS Firefighters are men and women who live or work close to the Station and ride the Fire Appliance when alerted to any Fire and Rescue incident.  The RDS crew consists of a Watch Manager, three Crew Managers and twelve Firefighters.

The Thetford RDS Firefighters attend one training evening a week, they also commit to training Courses at Bowthorpe Training and Development to enhance their Firefighting skills.

If you need a school visit we target these at Year 2 for Key Stage 1,  Year 5 for Key Stage 2 and Year 8 for Key Stage 3.

If you have someone who is fire-setting and wish to discuss this with one of our advisers please contact us.

We are sometimes also able to attend Community events but this will depend on resources, and we tend to target this to priority areas of our service. We do always look forward to hearing from you with any queries.
