The days were challenging but my team made the days bearable. Great group to work with. I wish I was still with them. They do excellent work with very little recognition.
Pros
General Work was for the benefit of the public
Cons
Time pressures were excessive

Volunteer work is often rewarding but being a volunteer firefighter takes it to a whole new level. You meet great local people who want to give back to their community. You learn great skills that can be applied in your personal and professional life. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Pros
The people, the equipment, the feeling of saving property and lives... everybody loves a Firey
Cons
Only one... emergencies don't just happen during office hours

* Helping the community in emergencies * Every situation is different and you learn something everyday in this job. * Management are some of the best people I have had the opportunity to work with. * My co-workers at the station are dedicated to the job and are a great bunch of blokes. * The hardest part of the job is not been able to help someone. * The most enjoyable part is been there for the community and having the training to be able to help, I really enjoy the training.
Pros
The training and the people
Cons
Not enough hours
