Volunteer for the Surrey Fire and Rescue Service

Be a volunteer, make a difference

At Surrey Fire and Rescue Service we are fortunate to have the support and commitment of volunteers.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) serves diverse and ever-changing communities, with a wide range of risks such as residential, commercial and industrial premises, and large areas of common and heathland.

We work hard to serve our communities, with a focused drive on prevention and safety messaging. Our volunteers take on a wide range of important roles within SFRS to help stations and departments engage effectively with our residents. They help to deliver community safety initiatives, run events, distribute personal protective equipment (PPE), conduct welfare checks, and assist at exercises to name a few.

Fire Volunteers come from all backgrounds and walks of life, and offer their skills, time and knowledge to deliver a variety of important roles, and their dedication helps to provide invaluable support to the communities and our colleagues within Surrey.

K9 Fire Patrol

Our K9 Fire Patrol is a wildfire prevention group run by our Wildfire and Rural Prevention Officers at Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. Members of the group work alongside Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, providing eyes and ears (and wagging tails!) across the Surrey countryside, delivering a wildfire prevention message.

By joining in, you'll be helping to protect your local heaths and helping us to spread the word about a potentially devastating threat to homes, businesses and precious wildlife. By simply doing your usual dog walks, you'll become an ambassador for responsible dog walking and fire prevention, and make an invaluable contribution!

For more information about the K9 Fire Patrol, please also join the SFRS Wildfire and Rural Affairs Facebook Group.
