DFRS welcomes the latest trainee Firefighters

Published on Sunday 19 September 2021

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service has welcomed 12 new wholetime trainee Firefighters and 11 new On-Call trainee Firefighters to the Service, at the Service’s joint police and fire training centre in Ripley.


The latest wholetime trainees, who make up training course 111, have begun their 15-week programme, and the latest On-Call trainees, who make up course 3-21, have begun their 8-week blended (weekdays and weekends) programme.

Deputy Chief Fire Officer Rob Taylor said: “A firefighters training course is the first step in a rewarding career serving the communities of Derbyshire. The next few weeks will prepare our trainees for the type of incidents that they will face when responding to emergencies across the county.

“All of the trainees joining us have their own reasons for wanting to become a Firefighter. A common theme is the pride they feel in knowing they will serve their community, responding to incidents when our communities are most in need and working to prevent emergencies from happening. They will all learn new skills that will prepare them for this work, and I look forward to following their journey through training over the coming weeks and their careers as they progress in the future.”

For more information on becoming a Firefighter visit our website, or follow us on social media @DerbyshireFRS.
