We Respect Your Privacy

We are committed to protecting your personal information that you provide to us


TasFire Training (TFT) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information that you provide to us. This statement explains our policies and practices regarding the use and disclosure of your personal information by TFT.

Although Tasmania does not have its own privacy legislation, the Tasmanian Government supports the maintenance of privacy standards by government and non-government bodies through the use of policy and codes of practice. The Tasmania State Government has established a set of Information Privacy Principles for use by State Government departments. The TFS adheres to these principles. TFT and this website fall under and comply with these principles and standards.

In addition to this TFT is bound by the State Service Act 2000 which sets down State Service Principles and a State Service Code of Conduct. These define acceptable and unacceptable behaviour within the State Service and contain references to confidentiality and use of government information and resources.

By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by TFT as explained below.

Tasmania Fire Service (TFS) has recently conducted a review of service delivery, including services offered by TasFireTraining, TFS’ commercial training division.

From April 2021 TasFire Training will no longer be delivering training courses to the non-government sector apart from those workplaces that have on site Emergency Response Teams. We would like to thank you for your custom over the period we have built our relationship.

We understand that this is a big change, however this will allow TFS to focus on supporting the emergency response capability of government departments and emergency response teams in high risk industries with the resources we have available. The following links provide information on issues of compliance:

We recommend that you review the following Worksafe document: Managing the work environment and also refer to Section 5 Emergency Plans, and this fact sheet Fact sheet -Emergency Plans.

WHS Legislation requires workplaces to have an emergency plan in place and people are appropriately trained. The following is a Worksafe link to a code of practice laws-and-compliance / codes-of-practice

Advice on development and legislative requirements on Fire Evacuation Plans for specified buildings go to Evacuation Plans.

Scheduled public courses will proceed until the March 31, 2021and can be found here.

We undertake to monitor impacts of this decision on the sector over time and we encourage you to seek out an alternative training provider that meets your needs.

If you have any concerns or have any further questions please contact Acting Director of Training Jeff Harper on (03) 61665500 or by email to Jeffrey.Harper@fire.tas.gov.au with the Subject: TasFire Training – withdrawal of services.
