Wednesday 21st May 2014



In 2013, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) balloted its members regarding industrial action in respect of an on-going dispute with the Government on Pension Reform.In 2013, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) balloted its members regarding industrial action in respect of an on-going dispute with the Government on Pension Reform.

Since the 2013 ballot, several periods of industrial action have taken place. Utilising Reserve Firefighters recruited last year, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Authority has satisfied its legal obligation under the Fire & Rescue Service Act 2004 and the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 - and ensured it has been able to continue to provide an emergency response throughout any local industrial action.

In order to maintain these contingency arrangements during any protracted periods of industrial action, DFRS has taken the decision to recruit further reservist Driver/Pump Operatives and Fire & Rescue Operatives to add to its pool of available recruits.

Anyone interested in becoming a Reserve Firefighter can call the dedicated phone lines on 01332 777012. Phone lines will be open from 08:30 to 17:00 hours on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, 21st May 2014
  • Thursday, 22nd May 2014
  • Friday, 23rd May 2014
  • Tuesday, 27th May 2014
  • Wednesday, 28th May 2014
