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.

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are currently planning our return to training as we enter the stage 3 recovery phase in line with current advice and reasonable community expectations. Tasmania Fire Service facilities will meet the Worksafe WHS standards including;

In addition, we require all course participants who are feeling unwell to not attend the scheduled course and we will be asking that participants declare that as far as possible that they are of good health. Our standard cancellation policy will be relaxed during this period in the interests of maintaining health and safety to cater for any participant health concerns.

We will contact all clients who have been subject to COVID19 cancellations to offer a course place. Our course schedule is now online, and we are taking bookings for those dates via the website or through direct contact.

Thank you for your patience during this time.
