About us

Welcome to the Fire Service College. We are an award-winning leader in fire and emergency response training and one of the world's largest operational fire and rescue training facilities.

We specialise in providing dedicated training for fire and rescue services (FRSs), emergency responders and a wide spectrum of commercial and public sector clients globally. Our instructors are current serving fire officers seconded from individual FRSs across the UK. And, as you’d expect, our tutors are professional and technical experts in their chosen fields.

Investing for the future

In March 2013 the College moved from government ownership to Capita (click here for the Capita plc website) in order to secure future investment. This will allow us to maintain the College as a pioneering facility for the fire and rescue services (both UK and overseas). Other emergency services and related markets, such as defence, oil and gas, will also benefit from these world-class facilities. This is an exciting time for us and visitors to the College in Moreton-in-Marsh can already see the transformation taking place as a result of Capita’s investment.

Challenging training experience

Our clients value the support we give to the professional development of their people. We also host integrated scenario planning and live exercises for major incidents. With our 'live' incident ground and wide range of realistic and practical training scenarios, we can replicate the situations faced by today’s emergency responders. This helps to prepare them to deliver the highest standards of effective emergency response when they are back on operational duties.  The College is one of the few organisations in the world that can offer such a broad and challenging training experience.

Professional partnerships

We work closely with the Chief Fire Officers' Association (CFOA), the Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme (JESIP) and the UK Fire and Rescue Service. This allows us to promote common operating standards and to develop and deliver a common and consistent approach to operational and leadership training within an accredited framework in support of interoperability.

Unique experience

Everyone going through training at the College benefits from a truly unique experience. From practical and theoretical training, to the opportunity for networking with peers and instructors, this is an unforgettable way to build skills and knowledge.
