Tasmania has experienced a fall in the number of house fires over the past 20 years. This is due to targeted education by the Community Fire Safety division of Tasmania Fire Service.
School Fire Education starts by reaching our children in primary schools across the state who take the fire safety message back to the home with many families planning what they will do in the event of a fire, checking smoke alarms and being proactive.
TasFire Training also reach adult learners through training that is provided to Tasmanian Workplaces and the skills and knowledge gained from our courses apply just as much in the home environment as it does in the workplace.
