Fire Station Profiles

Life in the

real outback

With more than 25 fire stations, volunteer fire brigades and fire and emergency response groups in the Northern Territory, fire fighting as either a career firefighter, auxiliary firefighter or a volunteer firefighter provides people with the opportunity to experience the best the Territory has to offer.

Often people who have had the opportunity to live and work in remote communities of the Northern Territory develop a whole range of work and life skills that make them a more competent, well rounded and experienced career firefighter.


Commands and stations

The Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service is made up of 3 different fire commands: Northern Command, Southern Command and Darwin Command. Within each command are career fire stations, regional stations (track stations), volunteer fire brigades and fire and emergency response groups (FERGs).
