Volunteering for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our team

Our volunteers are based throughout the County supporting the Groups with their everyday duties which may include providing safety advice in the home, giving presentations to local community groups, attending local events or simply collecting and delivering equipment. No two days are the same, and we are looking for volunteers to expand our team.   

We currently have just over 100 volunteers with an age range of 18 upwards, some are studying at College or University whilst others fit volunteering around their work life and some are lucky enough to be retired and able to give their support, but more importantly they just want to give something back to the community.     

Although the volunteer roles are unpaid, you can claim out of pocket expenses such as travel, and you will receive comprehensive training and be provided with appropriate clothing. Please note you will not be required to attend operational incidents.

If you can spare a minimum of 4 hours per week, are a team player with loads of enthusiasm and want to make a difference in your community, then we would very much like to hear from you. 


The benefits of being a volunteer

  • Make the most of your spare time by making a difference in your community
  • Get to meet new people, attend events and functions
  • Ability to build on existing skills and develop new ones
  • Volunteers are given professional training
