South Western Region

South Western Region South Western Region (SWR) runs from Toowoomba in the east, west to the South Australian border and south to the New South Wales border. The region's major city is Toowoomba with most of the population concentrated in the eastern part of the region, with the western areas more sparsely populated.

SWR operations is led by Fire & Emergency Services Assistant Commissioner Stephen Smith who oversees 40 urban fire stations, regional headquarters and area command offices staffed by approximately 580 employees ranging from career firefighters, emergency management officers, auxiliary firefighters, community safety officers and technical rescue. South Western Region has the highest percentage of auxiliary firefighters working along full time staff, with over 470 auxiliaries and more than 90 full time firefighters.

Rural Fire Service (RFS) regional operations are co-located with the South Western Region but led by the State RFSQ Assistant Commissioner. The RFSQ SWR supports over 7,300 volunteer firefighters in a geographically large area of approximately 400,000 square kilometres. The Region manages over 350 Rural Fire Brigades, with nearly 600 Fire Wardens through two Area Offices located at Toowoomba and Roma.

Regional Training

Regional training provides comprehensive training to all 42 stations in the region, ranging from road accident rescue and hazardous materials management, to competency maintenance programs.

We have numerous training facilities, including a world class confined space training facility, the first of it's kind in Queensland. The facility encompasses a range of simulated underground storm water pipes and a grain silo used for on-farm rescue training.

Community Safety Unit

Located in Toowoomba, the Community Safety Unit, provides promotional services, building survey advice and equipment to the stations within the region for educational purposes.

The unit manages a range of community safety projects for the region, and promotes the various activities of the QFES.

The Unit is currently involved in a regional awareness campaign involving all emergency services agencies and community groups in a combined "Triple 0 Show" held at fire stations randomly across the South West.
