Community Fire Unit (CFU) Training Day (cancelled)

  • 29 Mar 2020
  • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Scotland Island Station


Registration is closed

Our Community Fire Unit (CFU) plays a critical role in protecting the island from bush fire. During the current fire season and in many others we have seen the significant difference that a well prepared, well defended property makes.

Our hope is that over time more and more of our residents join the CFU and learn how to prepare and protect their own property and their neighbours properties.

To help with this we are holding another Community Fire Unit training course on Sunday 29th March.

The course will run from 9.30am to 4.00pm and will cover these topics:

  • RFS Structure
  • Working Safely
  • Fire Danger Ratings
  • Bushfire Survival Plans
  • Bushfire Behaviour
  • Preparing & Protecting Your Home
  • CFU Equipment & Use

Lunch will be provided.

The training is primarily for residents wanting to join the Community Fire Unit - but you can also use it as a refresher if you are already a member or if you are already a member of the Brigade.

To successfully complete the training and become a member of the CFU you will need to:

1. Register for the training course being held on the 29th March - do this straight away to help us with planning

2. Apply to become a member of the Brigade - do this straight away using this link Become a Member

3. Complete this application form to become a member of the Rural Fire Service - start this now because it will take some time for the RFS to process it RFS Membership Application Form

4. Complete the Volunteer Induction and Safety Induction short online courses prior to the CFU training course. We will send more details about how to do this when you have completed steps 1 & 2
