This course is equivalent to NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) Bushfire Awareness Training (22288VIC).
The fire and land management agencies recognise the Course in Basic Wildfire
Awareness as the minimum requirement for non-firefighting personnel who provide
support services at bushfires.
There are a variety of support roles that require this course such as drivers of
heavy equipment, media liaison personnel, catering staff etc. Non-firefighting
personnel who perform support roles are expected to hold technical competencies
necessary to perform their work, in addition to this course.
This training is only for those that have been directed here by their local RFS.
