Have you ever wanted to be a firefighter? Well now is your chance – the Bangalow fire station is currently looking for two retained (on call) firefighters to be on call from home or work to respond to fires and other emergencies at Bangalow fire station.
Retained firefighters are trained and equipped to deal with the same emergencies as permanent firefighters. They not only fight fires they respond to a wide range of emergencies, as well as educate school children, seniors, business people
and the wider community about fire safety.
An information session is being held Wednesday, January 24 at 6pm at Bangalow Fire Station, Byron Street, Bangalow.
‘The majority of retained firefighters have other jobs and community minded employers are usually supportive for them to leave work to attend call outs,’ said D/c Melissa Madden.
Retained firefighters are paid a fortnightly payment for being on call and receive an hourly rate for attending incidents, training sessions and other activities.
