On-call firefighters are members of the community who are paid to respond to emergencies. They do not staff the fire station 24 hours a day like full-time firefighters on the whole-time duty system.

Support staff

Behind our firefighter crew is our talented team of support staff who provide the Service with a range of expertise and skills in professional, technical, planning and administrative support services.
