We're the people you sometimes see on television, fighting bushfires and helping our community in times of emergency.
At the CFS, it's a real team effort and we need lots of team players with different skills. You don't have to be out there holding the hose fighting fires - we also need people to do things like operating the radio, logistics, administration and catering.
You never know what challenges you'll be facing next week, but one thing's for sure - it will never be boring.
Many current volunteers say they joined the CFS to protect and help their local communities. And the pay? Well, there isn't any. But the rewards are many - learning new skills, keeping fit, gaining valuable qualifications, earning respect within the community, having fun, being active as part of a team. We really do make a difference.
At the CFS we have more than 420 brigades across the State. We have many committed volunteers and always welcome more.
