Kent Fire and Rescue Service

Published: 12 February 2021

Our volunteers form an important part of Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS), working alongside operational crews and office based teams to help keep communities across Kent and Medway safe.

In 2020, KFRS volunteers gave 2,050 hours of their time delivering a range of duties across the county, including workshops and safety sessions with community groups, humanitarian work, research, promoting fire safety advice, and providing incident support.

We are fortunate to have 34 volunteers supporting a range of roles, and now the service is looking to welcome more people interested in voluntary opportunities, to join the team.


Just a few of the roles we're recruiting for:

Volunteer Support - Research

This role provides support for our Customer Experience and Behaviour Change team through a number of research projects. Help gather useful information to ensure we continue to keep our customers safe.

Our volunteers are asked to commit a minimum of eight hours each month, which can be carried out on weekdays, weekends and evenings.

Volunteers who undertake any activities are paid travel expenses from home, work or from the nearest fire station to them in the county, and are also given training and access to development seminars and opportunities.

If you’re over 16 and interested in becoming a volunteer, then head over to our website where you can find out about the different roles we do, meet more of the team, how to apply, and lots more.

The closing date for applications is 12th February.
