Out-Sourcing of First Aid

This post raises several concerns, the foremost being the proposal that the cost of attending an outsourced first aid course be borne by the Brigade(s).
The following questions have been posted:
Does the NSW RFS desire to have as many members as possible qualified in first aid?
Is the proposal for Brigades of the NSW RFS to meet costs for outsourced courses approved or sanctioned by the NSW RFS?
Is there a proposal for the costs of other courses such as chainsaw being covered by Brigades and/or individual members?
Was the issue discussed with volunteer training groups and if so what was the outcome?

The Printed Pocket Book is Back

The Printed Pocket Book is Back

We congratulate the RFS as they are planning another print run of the very popular Firefighters Pocketbook.

A limited number of printed copies of the Pocketbook are being distributed to Districts.

Get in early and secure yourself the November 2015 edition of the printed Firefighters Pocketbook.

If your District requires more copies, email the Pocketbook team and they’ll endeavour to assist while stocks last.
