Ever wanted to be a firey? Now is your chance.

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) this week launched its 2017 recruitment campaign, Life First, and is calling on enthusiastic men and women to join its ranks.

FRNSW Commissioner, Paul Baxter, said the campaign was designed to attract a diverse range of applicants from all industries and fields.

“We need people with problem solving abilities, who enjoy team work, are resilient, have good judgement and are motivated,” he said.

“By creating a broader view of a ‘firefighter’, we can tap into more skills, more capability and more talent.

“We want to attract people who might not otherwise consider joining fire and emergency services.

“Firefighters help anyone, anywhere, anytime. They respond to any emergency and are also passionate about safety, education and prevention.”

Recruitment information sessions will be held at the NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre in Surry Hills on October 19.

The two-week application process will begin on November 1.
