Following the recent release of CFA’s five year Fire and Emergency Management Training Strategy, a further step has been achieved with the introduction of a ‘Fire and Emergency Management Roles Pathways Map’.  

The Map provides a schematic representation of the pathways and relationship between operational, community safety, operational management, planning, logistic, public information and air operations roles.  The Map also provides an overview of Brigade roles for all members.

Executive Manager, Training Development, James Stitz says the Map is designed to inform members about the wide range of roles and their relationship to each other that are encompassed by the Fire and Emergency Management function. “It’s easy to read and sets out clear pathways for members who might want to consider future operational roles or other options than firefighting’, he says.

The development of the Fire and Emergency Management Roles Pathways Map stems directly from recommendation 24 of the Jones Report and is the first step in a strategy to create an individual career and training pathway for volunteers.

The Fire and Emergency Management Roles Pathways Map will be reviewed annually and updated to include new roles where necessary.  

The Map is now available for members to read at Brigades Online or click here. PDF downloads
