Fuel your passion: Applications open soon for Emergency Management Volunteer Scholarships
Do you volunteer with an emergency management or disaster response agency? Apply for funding to build your knowledge, skills and confidence through the Emergency Management Volunteer Scholarships Program. Eligible volunteers can receive up to $12,000 towards vocational education, or up to $25,000 towards higher education, for qualifications in disaster management, public safety and other relevant fields.
"The program allowed me to access training that improved my understanding of disasters. It will allow me to help build the disaster resilience in my local community.
I encourage other volunteers to apply for the scholarship program as the knowledge gained is invaluable."

The Gender Balance Overview of Australasian Firefighters 2015 is a WAFA initiative to establish the current state of play for all Fire Agencies within Australasia. As a base we hope it will encourage Agencies to set statistical objectives for gender balance and, in turn, improve all diversity reporting.
The overview was compiled by one of the WAFA Board members. We will use it to measure progress going forward and hopefully build comprehensive and accurate data for our Recruitment and Retention strategies.
This overview includes both volunteer and career firefighters. Data was obtained from Agency Annual Reports and various documents tabled at AFAC.
