Why join the CFA as a Volunteer?

Looking for a way to help those in need? As member of the Hastings Fire Brigade, you will have a chance to make a real difference to the lives of our community and those that surround us as a fire fighter.

What you will get is a strong sense of community and a sense of achievement by belonging to a cohesive, well-trained group of individuals. We do however operate as a team.

You will learn new skills, meet new people from a range of backgrounds and of course, perform a vital role in the community.

Being An Operational Firefighter

You do not need any particular skills as nationally recognised and accredited training is provided.

What is required is a bit of common sense, some enthusiasm and a bit of time commitment to train and respond to fires. Obviously we can plan the training but emergency calls come at all hours of the day and night, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

Whilst you are not expected to make every fire call, some minimum response is expected.

On average, our members attend 50 calls a year.

Brigade training takes place on a Monday night at 7:30pm.

How Do I Get Started?

To become a fire fighter you will first need to complete an Expression of Interest, click on the button below and you follow the instructions to let us know that you'd like to join us.

New members will go through a 6 month probationary period. During this time, you will complete a General Fire Fighter training course. Once formally accepted by the Brigade your training will continue in other fields and existing skills will be maintained.
