After a long selection process and a gruelling 13 week course, 24 recruit firefighters will today officially be welcomed into the ranks of Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW).
Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott has welcomed the allocation of two of these graduates to Baulkham Hills Fire Station.
“We want the community of Baulkham Hills to be served by a dynamic and modern firefighting force, trained to operate in diverse and challenging situations.” Mr Elliott said.
“These new recruits have been trained in firefighting, road accident rescue, high-angle rescue, community risk management, fire science and hazardous materials response.
“We welcome our new recruits, Scott Davidson and Ciaran Kennedy, and thank them for their commitment to serving our community in such an important manner.
“I wish the entire graduating class well in what is an important, but sometimes dangerous, career and I thank them for choosing a profession dedicated to protecting lives, property and the environment of NSW.”
FRNSW Commissioner Greg Mullins also welcomed the recruits.
“I know that this latest batch of recruits will uphold the high standards of integrity, courage and professionalism expected of a FRNSW firefighter,” Commissioner Mullins said.
