The Rural Fire Service is made up of volunteers from all walks of life – men and women from different cultural backgrounds, age groups and professions.
Rural fire brigades are a reflection of every local community.
Becoming a volunteer firefighter is easier than most people think. Brigades offer training ranging from basic firefighting, village firefighting and first aid to breathing apparatus operation and rural fire.
We don’t just offer firefighting roles, we have a multitude of areas that require volunteers. Communications, catering, logistics, planning and aviation support are critical – there is a job for nearly everyone in the RFS.
We rely heavily on the support of people from all backgrounds and cultures in our community. The people that make up our Service are as different as the society that we protect.
