Country Fire Service
South Australia

The vision of the South Australia Country Fire Service (CFS) is to be the best volunteer fire and rescue service in the world. 

The CFS serves communities through dedicated volunteers delivering professional fire and rescue services to outer metropolitan, regional and rural South Australia (SA). 

As an all-hazards agency, the CFS responds to bushfires, building fires, road crash rescues and hazardous material emergencies. CFS volunteers attend around 8,000 incidents and dedicate 3 million hours each year, to build safety and resilience in their communities. 

The CFS works alongside the SA Metropolitan Fire Service, the SA State Emergency Service, and local government to reduce fuel loads and educate the community. 

An enterprise registered training organisation since 2000, the CFS offers volunteers and staff nationally recognised training across 6 qualifications, 3 accredited short courses, and many units of competency.
