Jonthan; I found this site for you. http://www.dse.vic.gov.au/dse/index.htm
There are a couple of sites to look at , when you get on to this site look for one of the following sites below.
• Seasonal Project FireFighters
• Permanent FireFighters
• Volunteer Firefighting
Thanks Jonthan; has far as I am aware, we have one state fire authority which is the CFA and consists of mostly volunteers, like that in the US.
Then there is the DSE that looks after the State Forests in Victoria. Its the Government that request the assistance of overseas firefighter, most of these are tactile personal and are not involved in putting the wet stuff on the hot stuff. There is no private firefighting contractors that I am aware of. Who ever you could always look up the DSE on the internet and apply as a forestry firefighter of the next fire season in 2010? As you are young, single, fit and like to be a mountain goat. it is physical work. I will try and look up the contact for you. Cheers Leo
