Being a wholetime firefighter is an extremely rewarding career, whether this is in management or specialising in an area such as training, fire investigation, community safety and prevention, fire protection and search and rescue.

And it is more than putting out fires and cutting people out of cars. Our firefighters influence young people, help the community, act as role models, educate people on prevention, keep people safe, protect lives and save people, animals, homes and businesses.
