The role of a Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) volunteer is varied, with the main aim being to raise awareness of and to promote fire & road safety messages to all communities across Derbyshire. 

Volunteering with us can be rewarding. It brings the opportunity to meet new people, undertake new challenges and experiences. It also provides the satisfaction that comes from making a real contribution to making Derbyshire safer for all communities.

Volunteers provide us with additional skills, local community knowledge and perspectives which enhance and complement the role of the Service in meeting the needs of our local communities and help build closer links with them.

At present, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue are not recruiting any volunteers but if you are interested in volunteering, we would like to point to you in the direction of our partner agency below.
