Bushfire Volunteer Firefighter WHS Training

The Shire of York is responsible for ensuring compliance with Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation which considers Volunteer Firefighters who provide a variety of services to the Shire.

The Shire requires all Volunteer Firefighters to complete the Shire’s WHS training in order to meet essential requirements for becoming a Volunteer Firefighter.

We ask that you read and complete the Volunteer Registration Form , the Medical Declaration Form and complete two (2) training modules so we can endeavour to Work Safely Together.

  • Completed Volunteer Registration form 
  • Completed Medical Declaration form
  • Shire of York WHS Induction and volunteer Fire Brigade WHS induction (online) - approx. 30 mins

All Volunteers will need to meet the mandatory training requirements for the 2022/23 fire season.  Ongoing training and development will continue for future fire seasons.
