Jeremy is a Deputy Commissioner with Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW). His portfolio of Field Operations means that he is responsible for overseeing FRNSW’s proactive work with the community to prevent incident as well all operational activity in metropolitan and regional zones.
Since commencing as a Firefighter with FRNSW in 1997, the first half of Jeremy’s career had a very strong focus on rescue operations, working as a rescue operator in both metropolitan and regional areas.

Throughout his career Jeremy has focussed on improving the professional standing of the sector. He is pleased to be involved with ARRO as it provides an opportunity for all agencies involved in the rescue and care of patients to share information and learn from each other. This not only improves their own service delivery but also provides the best outcomes for patients.
