Anyone who thinks of the fire and rescue service usually thinks of firefighters, when in fact modern fire and rescue services have a huge range of other posts to help ensure we provide the best possible service to the community.
The role of the service is now much wider than its traditional job of firefighting and has many commitments and responsibilities to the community, other organisations and staff.
Support staff offer professional, technical and administrative skills and have helped AF&RS in particular to become known as a progressive organisation.
The range of services offered by support staff include:
Human resources, finance, supplies, strategic planning, performance management, best value, information, mapping and data management, statistical analysis, systems development, workshops, health and safety, project and fleet management, communications and media liaison, web and graphic design, marketing and customer consultations, document and CAD plan production.
