I love the Rural Fire Service in NSW. My life has been so fulfilled since I joined. I feel complete. I would love to make friends and network with other people from within Australia and around the world. Contact me, would love to hear from you.
As a volunteer, I just wanted to give something back to my community. As a result of joining and participating in various activities, I have found it so rewarding in a multitude of ways.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The people I work with are just amazing, I love the training, and I love helping others.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
We attend lots of Motor Vehicle Accidents as we have no emergency services within our area, we also attend to medical emergencies if required until someone else can arrive. We live in a fairly isolated enclave surrounded by national parks in one themost fire prone areas on earth.

Hey Liz - Welcome to FFN. There are 2 Single Fire Fighter groups on here - one which stays more active. Lots of men and women to socialize with. So come join us there as well. Another great group to join is the Chief's Back Room Crew - where we stir up a lot of mischief. See you around the pages. Heather B
Thanks for accepting me. Sounds like you stay busy down there. What makes yall so fire prone? It can get pretty hot and dry here when we dont get rain in a while. Been a pretty slow summer this year though. Take care. AJ
