About this opportunity
The Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades are unique and are fundamentally different to the state run agencies. Why, you ask?
We are formed and managed by your local community, through your Local Government, hence why you often hear our volunteers say “We are formed by the community for the community” – something we are very proud of.
There are approx 26,000 Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade Volunteers, within over 560 Local Government Bush Fire Brigades throughout Western Australia. We provide the state with over 80% of its resources and are proud of it!
All members are VOLUNTEERS.
We are professional in everything we do and we strive for excellence! We are well trained and have a strong focus on Safety.
Because of our community philosophy, we are there before, during and after the all types of emergencies working with our community through good times and bad.
The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades values all volunteers and encourages the community to be actively involved in these essential services. We could be your neighbour, your friend, someone you know or don’t know, the local shop owner, the postie, a farmer, a mechanic, a plumber, a stay at home mum or dad? The list goes on and on, so you can make a difference, its very rewarding, but always remember you only get out of something what you are prepared to put into it, that’s life!
These positions would suit people who are calm in difficult situations, are reasonably fit, who enjoy being part of a team and who pride themselves on being reliable.
