Crash fire rescue is one of the most aggressive firefighting disciplines requiring courage and professionalism. Firefighters form a component part of the operations element for Defence when operating both in the UK and overseas.
As part of a close-knit team, you can be deployed within short time frames to any location worldwide using limited resources to offer a multitude of fire response, prevention, and protection duties to meet Defence requirements. You will receive exceptional training to ensure you are adequately prepared to respond and resolve incidents involving aircraft, buildings, vehicles, hazardous substances and incidents caused by hostile activities.
In addition, you may also have the opportunity to gain fire prevention qualifications to ensure you can provide MOD personnel a safe and secure environment. (Note: due to the sophistication and efficiency of aircraft, and advancements in early fire detection on MOD establishments, fire crews spend significantly less time responding to aircraft and domestic fires than historically attended.)
