What is EFCC?

Securitas partners with several UK Fire Services to provide Emergency Fire Crew Capability (EFCC). EFCC are mobilised in the event of a major incident, pandemic, industrial action or any event which could reduce normal fire service capability. Securitas is the only security provider to offer this unique service, and has more than 600 trained EFCC on standby and ready to mobilise.

How do I get involved?

If you meet EFCC health requirements and your application is approved, you’ll join other EFCC recruits for an action packed 12-day training course at the Fire Safety College in Gloucestershire. Expenses and training accommodation will be met by Securitas.

Through a mix of practical exercises and classroom based theory you'll learn:

  • Hose running
  • Hydrant operation
  • Pump operation
  • Ladder climbing
  • HAZMAT (decontamination training)
  • Road Traffic Collision (RTC) training – the use of hydraulic cutting equipment
  • First Aid training
  • Breathing apparatus training search and rescue
  • Offensive firefighting
  • Defensive firefighting
  • Scenario exercises.

As a trained member of the Securitas EFCC you may be mobilised at any time.


Why should I join?

  • Relevance

    Following your initial 2-week training, the annual 6-day CPD refresher training will keep you up to date on skills and the latest fire safety information
