Duty System

On Call Duty System

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.
