More firefighters wanted

Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) is encouraging people from all walks of life to consider firefighting as a career. Applications will be open between 1 and 8 July 2024.

FRV acting commissioner Michelle Cowling AFSM says firefighting is a job in which no two days are the same.

“Every single day firefighters make a difference, working alongside Victoria’s other emergency services,” she says.

“Firefighters are provided with world class training and support throughout their careers and are provided with great opportunities for role specialisation and career progression.

“These include Emergency Medical Response (EMR), Urban Search and Rescue, High Angle Rescue, Heavy Rescue, Road Crash Rescue, Marine Response and more.”

FRV is looking for people who have strong problem-solving skills, integrity, accountability and have appropriate all-round strength and fitness.
