TFS Volunteering Community Engagement Toolkit

The feedback from the TFS Volunteer Community Engagement Officers has helped the Community Development and Education team to improve resources for volunteers to increase their engagement in fire safety. There is now a section on the Conexus TFS Volunteer Portal featuring the Community Engagement Toolkit.

The online toolkit includes:

  • Community Engagement Essentials – a collection of fact sheets to get you and your brigade started in the community engagement space.
  • How to Plan and Run – a quick and easy guide on how to plan and run various types of community activities and events, starting off with street meetings.
  • Community Engagement Webinar series – view the range of 2020 community engagement topics that were requested by TFS volunteers.

If there is something you would like in the toolkit, get in contact with your regional Community Development Officer by emailing communityed@fire.tas.gov.au

Useful links for TFS volunteers undertaking community engagement include:

Planning is already underway for the 2022 Community Engagement Workshops.

If you would like to learn more about community engagement for your brigade, contact the TFS Community Development and Education team at communityed@fire.tas.gov.au or 1800 000 699.
