Emergency Response Teams Training Tasmania


ERT training is aimed at high risk industries that need to maintain employee safety, protect plant, equipment and respond to incidents that occur on site.

Industries such as the mining and manufacturing sectors use emergency response teams as an effective response to emergency incidents. Onsite teams are trained to respond to incidents that threaten both human and physical resources. Crews are trained to enable them to work alongside responding Tasmania Fire Service Brigades.

The TasFire Training Code of Practice can be found on our website at Here


Emergency Response Team training encapsulates a range of competencies and is delivered in a needs based format depending on the types of industrial risks involved. The training includes;

Hazardous material incidents
First response to fire incidents
Fire control and emergency rescue
Operating breathing apparatus and firefighting pumps

Participants will be trained to work as a team during supervised practical exercises at our training grounds. Our instructors have many years experience within the firefighting industry and participant safety is paramount.

Duration, cost and location are all by negotiation according to workplace special needs


Please contact our regional consultants to discuss your needs. We will design a course based on your specific industry workplace risks and requirements.

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.
