Mount Magnet Volunteer Fire & Rescue Service Brigade
Through comprehensive training, VFRS firefighters learn to operate the wide range of equipment, vehicles and appliances used for fire suppression including charged hose lines, portable pumps, tankers and communications.
FESA provides VFRS training in:
-Personal and team safety
-Structural and bush firefighting
-Communications First Aid
