We require our firefighters to be physically fit. You will have to undergo stringent tests to check you are able to meet our demanding standards.
Being a firefighter isn't all about putting out fires. You will need to be able to respond to people in different environments and understand their needs.
Emergency situations can arise at any time and you will need to be flexible with your hours to fit into the schedules.
Communication is key to a successful fire and rescue service. In demanding situations, you will need to be able to communicate concisely and effectively with colleagues and residents.
Teamwork plays a huge part in the effectiveness of a firefighter. There is little you will be able to do on your own - you will need the help and support of your team to achieve results.
