Infinite Flight’s Emergency Service Organisation

ifvarbapproved

International First Responders is the leading Infinite Flight emergency service organisation saving lives and protecting the community in fires, disasters, medical emergencies and criminal incidences. Additionally, we provide the most accurate, relevant advice and information about current and general emergencies that members of the IFC may face in real life.

Hello and welcome to Infinite Flight’s first emergency service organisation. I, JamesQFA380 was inspired by the devastating Australian bush fires in 2019/2020 as well as the feedback from the IFC wanting to not only support emergency services but also to understand what emergency personnel do and how to prepare themselves for such disasters. As a firefighter with the News South Wales Rural Fire Service (Australia), I decided to seize the opportunity and to do exactly that by creating an organisation focused on virtual emergency response and sharing information about different types of emergencies.

I am overjoyed that IFR is now an officially approved organisation and am excited to share the future of the service with Infinite Flight, the IFC and most importantly you. With new, improved and fascinating features regularly coming to the organisation over the coming weeks and months as well as our upcoming plans, I look forward to seeing you in the skies with me responding to realistic virtual incidences and events!

See you around

THIS IS COOL! It’s so original! Gonna check my schedules if I could join ya!

Question: Does it include emergency rural medical services too?

Used to watch a show about that when I was a kid, based on the legendary real life Aussie “flying foxes” (they used DeHavilland Fox). Here’s a modern day version of the show, not out yet:

Thanks a lot, @Noah_Wills and @CaptJJ, we’ve been working really hard to create a quality post for the IFC to share our new VO. We’re glad you like it!

IFR does certainly include emergency rural medical services. Being aviation-based, rural emergency service is a large part of the air ambulance sector.

We would love you to join us, either to check us out or to stay!

With the ranks, if you start with the police course and get 100 hours, can you move to the firefighting course and go back and forth?

Hello, @Noah_Wills, you can join both from the very beginning. While we recommend choosing one for now as everyone is trialling/getting a taste for our organisation, as long as you’re active you can be part of all three sectors at once and a staff member or just part of one sector. It’s completely up to you.

Wow thats super cool! Where are you DC-10 tankers based out of?

Hello @EI-AVA, the DC-10 tankers are currently based at YSRI (Richmond RAAF base, NSW). This is due to the IFR headquarters being based in Australia and YSRI is the Australian base for the DC-10s.
In saying that, we are a very young organisation thus are very flexible to where things can be located. If you join and are interested in flying or developing the tanker aircraft within the service, you’re more than welcome in deciding it’s location and application for IFR.

Thanks for the question!

this is pretty neat looking

as someone who could look out their window and watch the DC-10 air tanker N612AX descend into their local airport, this is nice to see a VO with this kind of thing happening!

Sounds quite cool… I’m currently (on volunteer basis, as most are) employed by one of the world’s biggest humanitarian aid organisations, which also provides event medical care and regular EMS services in some countries.

I’ll have to think it over, but y’all certainly have my interest 😌

How do I apply when I click on the link on the position I want to apply for, it does nothing, I really want to be apart of this team. Thx

Apologies for that, we have fixed the website. Thanks for the feedback and you can now apply.
