Decline in House Fires is Good News

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.

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.
