Applications are now open for the permanent firefighter recruitment campaign.

Successful applicants will be judged on their physical aptitude and problem solving skills and must undergo rigorous testing after completing an online application. 

The recruitment drive is calling for all manner of applicants with a diverse skill-set in order to complement the many tasks that firefighters have to undertake beyond simply fighting fires. 

“We are looking for fit, passionate and resilient individuals with well-developed interpersonal skills and the capacity to undertake a range of different functions,” Commissioner Paul Baxter said.
