Hi, Sorry it took me almost a year to get back to you. Yes I send out my ezine to any firefighter who is interested. We have done a lot of growing over the past couple of months. I think there is more for everyone. I think there are articles for both vol and paid firefighters. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. That goes for anyone who wishes to receive a free firefighting ezine each month.
Sorry once again. I was not checking my FFN page.
G'day Wayne, I am with Aviation Rescue And Fire Fighting Service. We have departments in every State in Australia, basically our main skill lies with aviation crash and rescue however our district includes all buildings, instalations and busineses on the airport lease. Which is absolutly huge. We attend AFA's, medical calls, wild fires, haz chem and structural callouts on a daily basis around the airports, not to mention a crap load of aviation turnouts. Take a look at the Airservices Australia website and follow links to recruitment. I think we are having a recruitment in mid July for intake next year. The good thing is you can transfer from state to state. A lot of the state brigades dont recruit to oftern.
OK, my size is extra large, I measure 40 inches around the chest. I will send you a shirt, all I have are extra large sizes. The shirt is brand new. My address is below, please send me yours. Thanks and stay safe out there!!

Hey Wayne, Yep we are heading into winter here in central Austalia with temps already around 1 degree. Am currently laid up after tearing a hamstring during a hose drill. Maybe body trying to tell me something ?? Anyhow mate trust all is well for you & family, are you still thinking of coming to Oz?
Stay safe, Rocket
I publish a free firefighter newsletter and have recently added members from NZ and Aus. I have lots of members in Canada and The United States, but I do not have anyone from UK yet. Please check out our website and see if you are interested. Everyone welcome. www.fanningtheflames.synthasite.com
Hi Wayne , many greatings from Duesseldorf / Germany
I have read that your interested to transfer to the US ??
Even I tried to transfer to Canada but it seems us Europeans must start from the beginning :-((
I was at RBFRS 2 years ago, because of planing my transfer to the UK. But on the personal interview I wasn`t succesful.
Hi Wayne, looks like your working out of Sprowston? I take the RTC photo is Mousehold? I used to live on St Clement's Hill in your patch and still have family in Norwich. I also have a friend who works out of Yarmouth on red watch who lives local to me. Looks like you're wanting to ship out? I was thinking Canada or down under and would like some info if you have any?
Hi Wayne, Afraid I have no good news regarding my dept & lateral transfers. You would have to undergo that wonderful experience called a recruit course again & work through the ranks. As you might expect the salary is not so good for the first few years also. You may have more positve results from the metropolition brigades. I will make a few inquiries & get back to you ASAP. Be aware there are 6 states & 1 territory in Oz & they are are independant of each other & have differing rules & regulations.
The good news is, if your looking for a better place to reside then you can do a lot worse than good old oz. I have a daughter living in Holmes Chapel, UK & I cannot believe the cost of living over there. I guess its all relative BUT......we have sunshine.
I will get back to you,
