The 1st Lieutenant is responsible for organising the fire crews – especially on the fire-ground and during extended operations. The 1st Leeutenant also ensures that the Brigade roster is kept up to date and functional.
Lieutenants are considered to be senior fire-fighters and may be next in line to take over as Captain. Generally, lieutenants are also Team Leaders, and are therefore responsible for organising their respective teams.
Firefighters can be allocated to the Day Team, a Rostered Team or part of the Reserve Team. All firefighters are provided with all necessary training and personal protective equipment to allow them to safely attend bushfires.
