IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19

Due to the rapidly evolving situation with the Covid-19 virus and the advice to avoid non-essential gatherings, along with the stringent recommendations by the Federal Government if gatherings do take place, TasFire Training has taken the decision to suspend training courses for the immediate future.

 

Currently we are cancelling courses on a week by week basis and will be monitoring current advice and reasonable community expectations. We will contact all clients who have already been sent course confirmations and we will re-contact once we have some certainty about the environment. If you haven’t yet heard from us we will understand if you wish to cancel your booking in the current environment, there will be no penalty.

 

We will be guided by both Federal and State Government Health policy particularly in regard physical isolation to prevent person to person spread.  We wish you good health in this unprecedented time and will continue to work with our clients and the community to get through this situation.

 

Please contact me at j.young@fire.tas.gov.au  if you wish to discuss.
