Central Region

Central Region

The Central Region of Queensland is a diverse mix of primary production, extractive industry, minerals and energy export, tourism and commerce.  The Region stretches from the Whitsunday Islands to Agnes Water, encompassing tropical islands and the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef.  Moving inland the Region takes in the mining areas of the Bowen and Galilee Basins and the agricultural and pastoral districts west to Haddon Corner at the South Australian border.  Major centres in the Region include Mackay, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Emerald and Longreach.

QFES operates from 38 Fire and Rescue Stations with a staff of over 620 full time and auxiliary firefighters.  Rural fire services are provided by over 8,000 Rural Fire Service (RFS) volunteer members supported by a team of RFS career officers operating offices in Rockhampton, Gladstone, Mackay and Barcaldine/Emerald.

The State Emergency Service (SES) within Central Region consists of 14 Units comprising of 66 Groups and over 1,200 active volunteers supported by 14 staff spread across offices at Rockhampton, Mackay and Longreach.

The Rural Fire Brigades and Fire & Rescue Stations are resourced with over 200 fire appliances, including specialised appliances for technical rescue and hazardous materials response.  Our firefighters attend over 6,000 emergencies each year.  The range of emergencies includes road crash rescue along the Bruce, Gregory, Capricorn and Landsborough Highways and feeder roads – industrial accidents, hazardous materials releases and fires in the major centres – landscape fires in the grassland and bushland – and residential fires and emergencies across the Region.

To support operations across the Region, SES has 59 flood boats, 99 vehicles and 135 assorted trailers.  The SES volunteers across Central Region, on average, perform in excess of 55,000 hours of service within their communities each year.

QFES supports the disaster response and recovery efforts through core membership of the district and local disaster management groups.  QFES also provides disaster management training, exercising and assistance with plan preparation and assessment through dedicated Emergency Management Coordinators.

Central Region’s Fire and Emergency Communications Centre is located in Rockhampton.  Our Communications Officers provide a vital link between people in need and our Services.
