Duty System

Wholetime / On-Call

Wholetime Stations are staffed by wholetime personnel using a shift system of 4 watches (blue, green, red and white) operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This comprises of a 4 on 4 off work pattern of 2 day shifts (8am to 7pm) and 2 night shifts (7pm to 8am), followed by 4 days off.

On-Call Stations are staffed by Firefighters who are members of the community and are paid to respond to emergencies. They do not staff the fire station 24 hours a day like full-time firefighters on the wholetime duty system. They are notified of an emergency call via a personal pager, which they carry with them when they are on duty. On-Call Firefighters will book themselves available for fire calls and, if a call comes in during the hours they have agreed to be on call, they must reach the fire station within the allocated time usually within 5 minutes of receiving the pager message.

Most of our On-Call Firefighters are in full-time employment, with an agreement from their employers to leave to attend an emergency call and nearly all carry out their community engagement, prevention and protection duties.


Wholetime Training : Daily - Usually in the morning

On Call Training : Wednesday 18:00 hours
