Every March the Volunteer Wildfire Services opens up our doors for new volunteers, this allows us to ensure that the prerequisite training is completed during the winter months and that both our new members and existing alike have had the opportunity to both refresh and learn critical skills in order to keep them safe on the fire line.

We are looking for individuals who are interested in fulfilling one or more of the below roles:

FIREFIGHTERS
Most have day jobs, some are students, others run their own companies – but all are dedicated, motivated and highly-trained to ensure that our ultimate goal of wildfire suppression is taken care of.

PLANNING & CONTROL
The men and women without whom our firefighters would be ineffective. This team plans, deploys and maintains the effectiveness of the crews while keeping their safety as the top priority.

DRIVERS & LOGISTICS
The engine room of the VWS. These members keep things running smoothly and make sure our crews get to the fires quickly and safely.

FUNDRAISING & EVENTS
Fundraising and events focus on the task of raising much-needed sponsorships and creating awareness of the organisation’s mission to the greater public.
