Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service is responsible for providing day-to-day fire and rescue services across the two counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Our stations are staffed by a mix of 'wholetime' firefighters - operating on a full-time basis and providing an immediate response - and ‘on-call’ firefighters who work and live in their local communities and respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.

There are many interesting career opportunities with us, in Fire Control or one of our non-uniformed specialist support roles as well as being a firefighter.

Non-uniformed staff work in areas including Finance, Community Safety, Training, Human Resources, Information Technology and Workshops.
