The faces of firefighting in Australia

It’s been a long, long couple of weeks for Australian firefighters – we reached out on facebook and asked you to send in your best selfie or photo of your crew working away in the field and what we got back was amazing. Hundreds of photos were sent to us and we picked the top 70 odd to share with you. These are the faces of firefighting in Australia right now.

There are photos from just about every service in the country working away, but the thing that we picked up on the most – the smiles. Despite the fact it has been stinking hot, blowing a gale and you’ve been working in zero visibility around the clock, you can’t keep the smile off your faces.

Thanks for doing what you are doing. No matter if you’re career, volunteer, support or seasonal – keep up the good work.

I founded Flashover to promote Australian Firefighting. I've been a volunteer and a paid firefighter but now I spend my time chasing up leads, promoting good mental health and making the occasional Grumpy Firecom comic!
