Interested in becoming a volunteer?

The Shire of Chittering relies heavily on its 6 volunteer bush fire brigades for protection against the threat and devastation of fire.  Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades welcome residents who are prepared to join and assist in fire prevention and fire fighting.  If you are interested in being a part of this important community services please contact the Shire offices for further information 9576 4600

Volunteer fire fighters learn to operate the wide array of equipment, vehicles and appliances used in fire suppression operations. Equipment used includes charged hose lines, portable pumps, tankers and communications. Induction training is available for all new volunteers.

You need not be an 'active' fire fighter but be part of the Incident Support Brigade which is of great assistance to our active fire fighters and support crews in areas such as headquarters operations, welfare, communications, recruitment and Bush Fire Ready Groups.

The Shire of Chittering strongly supports the recruitment of both male and female volunteers representing a wide diversity of ages, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.  This is also a great opportunity to meet new people that are prepared to share their knowledge on fire behaviour and become more familiar with the surroundings in your area.

The Shire makes Emergency Management a priority and works in partnership with the community, agencies and other stakeholders in order to address risks that may affect the community, property and the environment.  Information has been provided on this website to inform residents and visitors of the emergency services available, how to prepare for an emergency and of emergency management plans the Shire has in place.
