Fire and Rescue NSW 2020 Recruitment Campaign to start July 2020

Posted on 11 Mar, 2020

Fire and Rescue NSW are looking for people with different skills and capabilities, outside the 'traditional' role of a firefighter, who want to join a team that's prepared for anything. At Fire and Rescure NSW (FRNSW) we do more than fight fires.

Applications for the 2020 Firefighter Recruitment Campaign open on 24 July 2020.

As fire­fight­ers, we put life first and we train to get it right.

Fire­fight­ing is a phys­i­cal­ly demand­ing occu­pa­tion. Tasks include car­ry­ing heavy loads includ­ing per­son­al pro­tec­tive equip­ment, han­dling tem­per­a­ture extremes, vari­able ter­rains and con­fined spaces, all of which impose unique phys­i­cal and phys­i­o­log­i­cal demands upon firefighters.

The Fir­e­Fit Train­ing Guide is based on an eight to 12-week pro­gram, depend­ing on each individual’s fit­ness lev­el, and is avail­able to help eli­gi­ble can­di­dates pre­pare for the Fire and Res­cue NSW Phys­i­cal Apti­tude Test (PAT)*.
