AFTER waiting five months for his transfer to be approved Anthony Brennan is officially Warwick's newest firefighter.

"My wife and I helped some friends and family move to Warwick," he said.

"We had been thinking about moving back to the country because we are both country people but we fell in love with Warwick.

"The people and the town are nice so I put in for a transfer and I finally got it."

While waiting for the transfer to be processed, Mr Brennan commuted between his new home and his south Brisbane station at Acacia Ridge.

He joined the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service nearly four years ago.

"My brother was my inspiration for becoming a firefighter," he said.

"He is a station officer in Brisbane and has been a firefighter for 30 years.

"I was off doing other things such as security, retail and driving limousines.

"Eventually I came to realise what I wanted to be and thought I'd give fire fighting a go."

Mr Brennan said he did not regret the career change.

"It's the best job in the world, I reckon," he said.

"While driving a limousine you get to meet lots of people but in the fire service I get to help lots of people and I get a great deal of satisfaction out of that.

"It's always a good feeling to know someone is there when your life is on the line and I like being that person.

"There is nothing like that feeling."

Mr Brennan said there were small differences between the country and city fire stations but said the job was still the same.

"I wouldn't say things are any easier up here," he said.

Mr Brennan looks forward to meeting the people in town.

"I like the thought of being closer to the community," he said.

"It's more personal in the country and it's great to be in a town with a sense of community spirit."
