Delabole is an on-call fire station, staffed by on-call firefighters who crew a Water Tender Ladder and a Landrover 4-wheel Drive Pump (L4P - Mini Fire Appliance). The L4P provides limited fire fighting equipment to hard to reach areas, such as restricted access and cross country locations.

We welcome applications from anyone interested in becoming an on-call firefighter. All shortlisted applicants will be invited to an assessment interview (regardless of whether there is a vacancy at the station or not). Suitable applicants will be invited to the (twice yearly) assessment centres and if successful they will be placed in the Talent Pool to be selected for progression to the Approved to Ride Course as and when an appropriate vacancy at their Fire Station arises
