Home Fire Safety

The Tasmania Fire Service’s Community Education Unit delivers a number of programs in the community to enhance community safety. These programs are free-of-charge.

The Tasmania Fire Service responds to more than 350 house fires each year. Tasmania has one of the highest fire fatality rates per capita in Australia.

The Tasmania Fire Service provides information to keep you and your family safe and protect what you value. We have a range of free resources to help you, such as information on what to do in a fire, smoke alarms, home escape plan, reducing your risk at home, keeping children safe and basic home fire safety training materials for Carers and community care providers.

Who this service is for

Our community education program is targeted to people most vulnerable to the impacts of a home fire including young children, seniors, people with a disability, people of culturally diverse backgrounds and others. Our home fire mitigation programs provides opportunities for people with disabilities and aged people to get advice from firefighters about fire safety matters in their homes.
