Matt Crisp, deputy captain, Fire & Rescue NSW, Byron Bay.

The Byron Bay Fire Brigade is seeking adaptable, physically fit, team orientated men and women with a strong community spirit for employment as Retained Firefighters in their community.

Our world-class emergency service organisation relies on highly skilled, ethical and professional individuals from a variety of backgrounds. We are looking for people who can commit to Fire & Rescue NSW’s values and contribute to fire prevention and emergency responses in their community.

Retained Firefighting involves night and weekend work, and can be at times physically, mentally and emotionally demanding. However a firefighting career is one of the most important, rewarding and well respected careers in the community.

An information evening is being held at the Byron Bay Fire Station on June 7 at 6.30pm. Further information regarding the role can be found at the FRNSW homepage under recruitment.
