Hi, thought I would write this as when I was looking at joining the raf fire service I looked on here. Unfortunately I never saw anything about the job when u have got in nd passed Halton and Manston. I am currently two years into my career as a firefighter. The job is mostly admin work nd training, sorry but u dnt get fires or planes crashing Its mostly false alarms. To give u a idea of a normal day shift u check the appliance nd equipment then do whatever jobs are on tht day, its mostly weekly vehicle tests, fire extinguisher maintenance and adim for all of tht. Its lots of form filling on the computer. Mostly we have to train to keep our skills up crash exercises and domestic exercise. If u want to play sports you will struggle to get time to do it unless u play tht sport at a high level. Education wise u have to be in 4 years before u can apply for uni courses. U have access to a levels through education on station. As a SAC u will not be able to do fire safety courses, the chance to easily move to civil service when u leave is not likely from all of the people I have worked with and who have left.
Hope this is useful, feel free to ask any other questions you may have nd will try to answer them
