Essex County Fire and Rescue Service


On-call firefighter training and development

Once you’ve passed your assessment process and been offered employment with us you’ll be ready to start training to become an on-call firefighter. This will begin with a two-week training course, which runs Monday - Friday.

After this you’ll attend evening training sessions which usually last for two hours one evening a week for 10 weeks.

After your initial training you’ll of course continue training throughout your career - making sure you’re always up to date and confident in your role.
