Scottish Fire and Rescue Service

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is here to serve the people of Scotland – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Our Service was established on 1st April 2013, bringing together the collective skills and experience from across Scotland’s previous eight fire and rescue services.

We have approximately 8000 firefighters across the country and work from 357 stations including Wholetime, Retained and Volunteer.

We work in close partnership with local communities’ right across Scotland to deliver crucial safety messages in the fight against fire.

When emergencies do occur, our staff are ready and equipped to respond, attending tens of thousands of incidents each year ranging from fires, transport incidents, chemical incidents, natural events, including wildfires, and industrial incidents.

Our high service standards have demanded an ever increasing commitment to development and our firefighters continue to be amongst the best equipped and most highly trained in the world.

Our aspiration is that by working together for a safer Scotland, we can help reduce the incidence of fire.
