Bush FireFighter Training 

Date: Sunday 23 February 2020

Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm

Dear Members,

In what has been an extreme and perilous bush fire season over recent months, members of The Scotland Island Rural Fire Brigade have made significant and sustained contributions at the community, district and state levels in protecting life and property.

In addition to responding to incidents the brigade educates, informs and co-ordinates with other offshore leadership groups to maintain the wellbeing of our local community.

Bush Fire Fighting skills are increasingly relevant in this time of climate uncertainty and provide a sound basis to:

  • Prepare for home and family protection;
  • Contribute at the community level to assist with storm damage, fire season preparation and responding to incidents impacting family, friends and the greater community; and
  • Contribute at a district level in preparation and response activities that impact the Pittwater area.  

Bush Fire Fighting training is available to all brigade members and offers a structred program combining online modules and practical skills sessions broadly covering:

  • Safety;
  • Understanding fire behaviour;
  • Risk assessment;
  • Working in teams;
  • Communication technologies and methodologies;
  • Preventative and defensive strategies; 
  • Equipment operation and application; and
  • Front line bush firefighting.

A briefing session will be held at the commencement of training to clearly explain:

  • Brigade membership process
  • Training plan
  • Bush Fire Fighter accreditation

All standing, new and 'pondering' members are encouraged to attend.
