Lithgow West Fire and Rescue squad is currently looking for more recruits to join their small team.
Fire-fighter Mark Dean said they are looking for someone who was suited to a team environment.
"We have a strong camaraderie here and it would be great if people wanted to join that," he said.
According to Mr Dean the crew can be called to respond to any incident in the state.
"You get paid a monthly retainer and per call out, you will also get annual leave, superannuation and long service leave," he said.
To become a part of the crew, the only requirements are that you have to be physically fit and you're an Australian resident.
"It also helps and is preferred if you have day time availability," he said.
Successful applicants will have to attend two, four day blocks at Fire and Rescue at Orchard Hill for training, which will be fully paid for by the crew.
Mr Dean said that the crew did more then fight fires and get cats out of trees.
"Though we have had to get a bat and a cockey [cockatoo] out of a tree once," he said.
"We do community safety talks, attend road accidents and assist with hazmat incidents."
