The DRUM Magazine | August 2009 | 13 Move over Hamilton Island these guys reckon theyve landed the Best Job in the World The suits have been fitted, the training begun the first 2009 Fire and Rescue Service Recruit Squad are here, and here to stay. The eleven new recruits all believe a job with the firies is a job for life and an enjoyable one at that. Recent Government announcements mean that two more recruit squads will take place over the next year recruiting full time staff for the Darwin and Alice Springs regions. A new station will mean more jobs, so the NT Fire and Rescue Service is heating up for some campaigning to get the best people for the job. Director of NTFRS, Mr Greg Nettleton said the Governments announcement is supported by NTFRS. Its great that the Government have acknowledged the need for more Fire and Rescue personnel and we look forward to welcoming new members to our great team, he said. The recruits started in May and finish their training in September and a new squad is expected to start in late 2009. Right left to right New recruits Leon Peacock, Jim Zamolo, Daniel Orwin.
