MINMI fire station needs to recruit up to six new volunteers to fill the gaps in its retained roster.
This month's heatwave highlighted the importance of a full station roster, as dozens of fires burnt throughout the state.
With the only application requirement being a valid driver's licence - the station is hopeful its wishes will come true.
Minmi station's newest recruit, 22-year-old Bobby Newton from Maryland, said joining the local fire station as a retained firefighter was something he had always thought of doing.
After months of gruelling and often rigorous training, Mr Newton said he was confident in dealing with an emergency.
While admittedly "nervous" for his first call-out to a vehicle accident earlier this month, he said it was comforting to know he was trained to save lives.
"While I didn't do too much on the scene I know that in future I can rely on the training to get me through," Mr Newton said.
Similarly, Elizabeth Hatcher, 20, from Maryland, is halfway through completing her training to become a retained firefighter for the station.
Still at university, Miss Hatcher said a part-time job at the local fire station certainly had the exciting factor.
"I wanted a job that did not require me to sit at a desk all day," she said.
Duties for new recruits will eventually involve fighting fires, attending chemical spills and motor vehicle accidents.
However, station commander Phillip Rodgers said the successful completion of first aid, medical and physical training was an important first step.
Commander Rodgers said he hoped both men and women would embrace the opportunity to make a difference in the community.
