Shropshire’s Fire and Rescue Service Expertise

Shropshire’s expertise for having one of the best run “on call” firefighter operations in the UK has been highlighted at a national conference.

Fire Officer, Group Manager Jon Temple and Watch Manager Tony Talbot showcased how Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service manages the Retained Duty System which employs 343 on-call firefighters who operate out of 22 of the county’s fire stations, most of them rural.

They add to Shropshire’s firefighting force of more than 500, including wholetime firefighters employed full time at fire stations in Telford, Wellington and Shrewsbury where populations are higher.

They were speaking to over 200 delegates from 44 fire and rescue services from across the country at the National Fire Chiefs Council conference in Hinckley Leicestershire this week.
