Territory and Municipal Services are putting out the call for seasonal firefighters.
“Ideally we are seeking applicants that have nationally accredited fire fighting qualifications, however if people possess a strong work ethic, work well in a team environment and are keen to learn new skills then I encourage them to apply.
“Seasonal fire fighters will receive extensive training in basic fire fighting, chainsaw operations, driving four-wheel drives, advanced first aid, working with chemicals for weed control and general on-the-job duties.
“They also have the opportunity to secure future employment as a fire fighter within the ACT Government. Eighty percent of last year’s seasonal fire fighters are still employed with TAMS.
Probably the best way to break into the closed shop of firefighting.
If you’re interested get along to the Stromlo Depot on Cotter Rd at 5.30 pm, Wednesday 6 June. RSVP to Scott Farquhar via email on firstname.lastname@example.org .
