Rural Fire Service Volunteer Charter


The Rural Fire Service (RFS) Volunteer Charter is an agreement between the State of Queensland, the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES) and the Rural Fire Brigades Association Queensland (RFBAQ). The Charter ensures that the State of Queensland and QFES will commit to consultation with volunteers regarding matters which might reasonably be expected to affect volunteers.

The first charter was signed at our very first Volunteer Summit in 2008. We are pleased, that in keeping with tradition, the new 2016 Volunteer Charter was signed at the Volunteer Summit on the Gold Coast in June.
