Wholetime firefighter

Full time or Wholetime firefighters ensure our busiest fire stations are crewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As well as responding to everything from fires to road traffic collisions, they also spend a lot of time in working in the community to provide advice and education to help prevent emergencies happening in the first place. Find out more about the job below.

I’m Helen Rogers and I’m on Red Watch at Weston-super-Mare. I started back in May last year, that is when I started my training, and before that, I was self-employed as a clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist for the last ten years.

Joining the fire service is something I always wanted to do so I always kept tabs on the recruitment updates. They were recruiting whilst I was abroad. I applied for it, came back, and luckily enough I got it.
