Newquay Community Fire Station is a day staffed station with emergency response being provided by two watches (Orange Watch and Green Watch) plus on-call firefighters. There is 24hr cover during the summer months due to the increase in people over the holiday period. 

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

For more information and to apply to become an on-call firefighter, please visit our Service Careers recruitment pages and/or call our Resourcing Team on 01872 323800.

In addition to the Newquay town area, Newquay's fire appliances provide a first response to:

Crantock, Cubert, Holywell Bay, St Newlyn East, Carland Cross, Mitchell, Summercourt, Quintrell Downs, St Columb Minor, Watergate Bay

The crews also provide a dual response to RAF St Mawgan.

As one of the major tourist resorts in Cornwall, there are a number of special risks within the area including large numbers of hotels, holiday parks and camping sites which require inspection to ensure they have adequate fire precautions.  The risk of fire is also increased with the influx of visitors during the summer months, which raises Newquay's population from 22,000 to over 100,000 in the summer months.

Crews from Newquay have detailed plans in preparation for any incident which occurs at the National Trust property of Trerice Manor.  These plans help to ensure that any incidents at the Elizabethan Manor House are dealt with swiftly in an effort to minimise damage to the property and its contents.

The RAF facility at St Mawgan is also a high risk area which requires specialist training and knowledge of the site.
