How do you measure up for one rewarding career?


Are you passionate about providing safety to your community?

Firefighting is largely about building relationships in the community. The team strive to make a difference through community awareness and education on fire safety issues, hazard reduction, legislation compliance and many other areas.


Do you want to build strong and lasting friendships?

By joining the NTFRS you are joining a family who are there to grow with you and support you through the every day pressure and demands of being a firefighter.


Are you fit and healthy?

Prior to selection into the NTFRS applicants must be certified ‘medically fit’ through examination by an approved medical practitioner in accordance with AFAC Medical Guidelines.
Applicants also undertake a physical fitness assessment designed to assess levels of strength, cardiovascular endurance and job-orientated assessments.


Do you thrive under pressure and want to develop more skills?

Working as a Territory Firefighter demands physical and mental strength, persistence, compassion, maturity, a sense of service, and a sense of humour. Being part of the NTFRS is much more than a job; it’s a career.
