The role of a firefighter

​The role of a firefighter is far more than just responding to fires and other emergencies, such as animal rescues, flooding and water rescue incidents. 

Providing education programmes and safety messages to local schools, businesses, community groups and residents is an essential part of the firefighter’s role in helping to prevent accidents and limiting the injury potential of those that do occur.

Following initial training, firefighters undertake continuous development training and have the opportunity to train for different skill sets.
