Firefighter Control

If you would like to provide a vital service to your community by dealing with 999 calls ranging from house fires to serious road traffic collisions to cliff rescues, then Firefighter Control could be just the role you’re looking for. 

Staffed 24 hours a day and a crucial part of the Avon Fire & Rescue Service family, Firefighter Control help mobilise crews, identify exact locations, provide fire safety advice to people who might be trapped inside a burning building and continue to reassure callers until the moment firefighters arrive on the scene. They are also trained in dealing with other incidents, including chemical, radiological, biological and nuclear incidents.
