Every year, QFES relies on 42,000 volunteers to deliver front-line operations and support before, during and after an emergency. Such demand means we're always on the look-out for Queenslanders willing and able to help protect Queensland's people, property and environment.
What it takes
A commitment to serve and help others
Quick thinkers and working as part of a team
Possibility of working extended and irregular hours
Personal resilience and the ability to operate in stressful situations
It's a big job carrying the weight of your community. It takes a diverse team who bring a range of skills from a range of backgrounds. As a volunteer, you must be passionate. You must be proactive in times of calm and prepared in the event of an emergency.
