Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service is in the process of training its latest group of trainee retained firefighters.
The service relies on retained members of staff to provide emergency cover across the county.
Retained crews have day jobs which they work a the same time as being on-call to attend emergencies.
There are more than 300 retained firefighters employed by Shropshire Fire & Rescue, who must stay within five minutes of their home station when they're on shift.
