Are you looking for a career that’s rewarding, challenging and contributes to the safety of our community?
We particularly want to encourage applications from women for this course.
A day as a firefighter can involve anything from a road crash rescue to responding to a structure or vegetation fire. The roles include frontline firefighting, education and training, fuel reduction, rescues and more.
We are committed to encouraging gender diversity across the Fire Service and that starts at the recruitment level, by seeking more female applicants.
Firefighting has traditionally been a male dominated profession. That is changing across the country as fire services actively seek to bring more women into the service.
Reaching out to female applicants broadens our talent pool. And research has shown that greater diversity improves organisational performance, productivity and community safety outcomes.
The TFS already has almost 950 female volunteer firefighters who love the work they do and make a huge contribution to the safety of their communities. But there are only 11 female career firefighters so we need more.
The recruitment process is thorough and physical standards are high, but it’s definitely achievable.
The Firefighter recruitment process includes written aptitude testing, physical aptitude testing, interviews and other assessments to ensure suitability for the job.
Chris Arnol Chief Officer
There are 15 positions on the course, with vacancies in the North West, Northern and Southern Regions. You can find more information at www.jobs.tas.gov.au and www.fire.tas.gov.au/Show?pageId=colRecruitment
Someone here asked me recently what I thought of that ridonkulous Suzanne Venker article about women needing to let their husbands be the boss of they want to have a happy relationship. Well, I don't think anything can sum up my feelings better than this piece from Reductress.

A secret beach, a friendly echidna and a flying pelican 🌊🐗🌊
Today's featured Tassie walk is all about Boltons Beach.
Boltons Beach is so incredibly beautiful.... to say it is a little piece of Tassie paradise is an understatement! You will find it just 10km's past Triabunna, look for Hermitage Road on the right and then you drive 5km's down a dirt road. Then you come face to face with pure Tasmania :)
Boltons Beach is 4.2km's of amazingly clear waters, waves that actually break on the beach (I'm not kidding you), a lagoon called Hermitage in the south and an entire beach backed by sand dunes! All up just over 8km's along the beach and back, around 1.5 hours.
Oh and the only person I ran into was a Parks & Wildlife officer doing an Asset Check (where they note the conditions of the tracks and roads) :) #Tasmania

This morning I led the Labor Party’s opposition to the dirty deal done by Senator Hinch and the Turnbull Government to further strip away workers' rights. I am proud to be fighting to protect working families and their trade unions. One Nation and Senators Xenephon and Hinch cannot be trusted when it comes to standing up for workers.

BREAKING NEWS: We're a step closer to delivering what Australians want. While we're still reviewing the detail of the Senate Committee's Report, it's clear that politicians have started to rise above party politics, achieve consensus and open the door to equality becoming the law of the land in 2017.
