Use the Polygon selection tool to trace around the figure. Once the tracing has been finished, and you see what looks like marching ants surrounding it, choose Edit > Copy, then Select > Deselect, and then click on the regular Pointer tool, and choose Edit > Paste. That will paste in a copy of the figure you just traced, enabling you to add text behind it. I've done a copy for you which you'll be able to edit in Fireworks.
Thank you for your answer, I'm sure it will be very helpful.
I'm confused though, what exactly is this image that you've posted? When I open it in Fireworks it's just the same one that I already have?

Look in the layers panel and you;ll see that there are two bitmaps.
I see. Thanks again!
