In an electrical fire situation, turning off or isolating power is an important step in reducing danger.

Low voltage fuse removal training underway

Low Voltage Fuse Removal training is underway across the state with 82 brigades having already received training as part of stage one. 

The one-day course includes both practical and theoretical components.

By undertaking this training, CFA firefighters will have the capability to operate safely on firegrounds when there is an electrical issue, enabling them to attack fires prior to the arrival of an electrical professional to the scene.

The training is open to class 5, 4 and 3 brigades, and to be eligible, members will need to complete the Electrical Awareness Package on the Learning Management System. 

The two-day Safe Working at Heights training course will also be available soon, and open to class 5,4,3  brigades. 

Both training packages are an exciting step forward for safety, ensuring our people have the knowledge and equipment to work safely at the scene of an incident.

Here is an update from CFA Commander John Zuccarelli. 

These projects are funded as part of the State Government’s $60 million investment in CFA, courtesy of the Fire Services Statement.
