Floods, fires and fencing; Fire and Rescue's Rebecca Bird is set to take flight in Gunnedah's 314 team after making the move from Narrabri on her two year anniversary.
"I put my transfer in, and didn't realise but it was on the exact day of my anniversary," Ms Bird laughed.
"I went in to sign the paperwork, and we had to put in what day we joined and then it hit me."
Ready to work and get to know her new team, she says being a firey for her was about doing something different all the time, surrounded by a supportive team.
Starting out in Berowiner at the recommendation of a friend, she hasn't looked back, learning the ropes with Narrabri Station 399 and relishing her part in helping people out.
"I like the diversity, there is so much, you are doing different things every day, learning all the time, it's always changing. You get good training, a great crew, it's like a big family."
Day-lighting as a support worker, the trials of the COVID-19 may be tough, but her dedication to helping others keeps her going.
She has been sent on jobs out to Glenn Innes, Tenterfield, and put in some long hard nights in Narrabri in the past, helping out with both the ravaging bushfires and floods.
"With the fires, when we went they were first taking off, so we did property protection, which is mainly what I did," she remembered.
"In the floods, we were in the first truck that went out to Narrabri, we did a couple long nights there."
Working in drastically different circumstances, meeting different people and seeing the countryside, she has gained a lot of treasured new experiences, and looks forward to continuing them in Gunnedah.
"A big thanks for the Narrabri team for their support. They are an unreal station to start at, they really supported and helped me," she stated.
"And thanks to Gunnedah for welcoming me in so easily, from the first it was 'welcome aboard, lets do it', and I'm so keen to give it a go."
