You're all not thinking ahead. This is the best time to become a firefighter and get trained. There will be more bushfires next season so the demand for firefighters for the near future is very high, yet the real danger for now has passed. So you can get trained, get paid and don't have to get yourself in harms way. And firefighters do more than fight fires you know, so you can do all kinds of other usefull stuff. I'm not kicking him while he's down, I tried to help and he laughed at it, so shame is on him, not me.
