We are the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service

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

Our most recognisable role is emergency response and we attend over 90,000 incidents a year, covering everything from fires and road traffic collisions to water rescues and chemical spills.

While our staff are ready for action 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, our role begins long before any 999 call is made, and in communities right across Scotland, we are working to deliver crucial safety messages in the fight against fire.

Our frontline is supported by a hardworking team of non-uniformed staff, from accountants and ICT specialists to cooks and technicians, without whom we could not function.

Our high service standards and commitment to development have ensured that our staff continue to be amongst the best equipped and most highly trained in the world.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is a Stonewall Diversity Champion and is committed to advancing lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) equality and this is reflective in all our policies which are inclusive of all protected characteristics.
