What do full time (Wholetime Duty System) firefighters do?

To become a front-line firefighter you need composure and understanding. You may need to react quickly in a crisis, or communicate vital information with clarity. In return you will receive a highly competitive salary and benefits package, backed by excellent career development and promotion opportunities.

Finally, you need to enjoy working as part of a team. Much of your job will involve working together, which means being considerate, resourceful, innovative and decisive. At times you may need to accept direction, on other occasions you’ll be asked for your views and input.
