Types of firefighters
A second family
Being a firefighter is like having a second family. You’ll form a tight bond with your team, and they’ll always have your back.
A sense of purpose
Knowing that each morning, you might just save someone’s life that day. And your motivation in the role will help motivate you in everything else you do too.
Every day is different, and each incident brings new challenges. One minute you could be dealing with a chemical spill, the next a vehicle fire.
New and transferable skills
Thinking fast, communicating quickly and keeping calm in a crisis are just some of the skills you’ll fine tune as a firefighter. From first-aid to health and safety, you’ll build skills in areas that will also benefit your day-to-day role.
