The two-minute film aims to assist in filling long-term vacancies at the station.
It highlights the diverse firefighting experience, while giving an insight into the outdoor-focused lifestyle staff can enjoy while off shift in Mildura.
Filling these vacancies forms part of CFA’s 350 Firefighter Program (P350), run by Growth Programs. P350 is our current state government commitment to enhance service delivery in a range of communities, which includes increasing mixed-rank career firefighter numbers at fire stations.
Mildura Officer-in-Charge Ron Shiner said he needed four more Leading Firefighters to support increased staffing of the Aerial Pumper.
“Growth Programs has recently completed renovations at the station, adding two bedrooms and extending the gym and kitchen to accommodate additional career firefighters,” Ron said.
“As a fire service agency, we need to respond to population growth in our community, which is why we’ve increased staffing numbers and are looking to fill vacant Leading Firefighter positions to support the work the Aerial Pumper does in Mildura and the surrounding area.”
“I encourage firefighters based at other integrated fire stations who are looking for a change of scenery, to check out the sunny lifestyle showcased in our video.”
