Emergency Services Volunteer

The Emergency Services Volunteer Working Group, which includes the Tasmania Fire Service, Ambulance Tasmania, the State Emergency Service, the Australian Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Surf Life Saving Tasmania and Volunteering Tasmania, have launched their “Join Learn Be Ready” volunteer recruitment campaign, which was launched by the Premier Will Hodgman in October 2014.

The campaign highlights volunteering opportunities with six of Tasmania's emergency management agencies, and encourages people, especially in rural communities, to look at the variety of roles that can be undertaken and join up as a volunteer now, before disaster happens.

Although Flinders Island does not have a Surf Life Saving Association, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer within the Emergency Services.

You can read more about the campaign, view the video, and find links to all the participating agencies at www.emergencyvolunteers.tas.gov.au
