  • QFES Volunteerism Strategy Discussion Paper: 2017

    This discussion paper for the QFES Volunteerism Strategy will further the conversation as to what strategic directions and priorities QFES should adopt to implement a contemporary volunteer model that is sustainable and represents public value.

    It explores the challenges the department currently faces as well as opportunities for QFES volunteerism and presents a framework to address these, proposing four detailed key strategic areas for discussion and review, being:

    1. Investing in our people: developing personal capability

    2. Proficient support services

    3. Building healthy communities

    4. Exceptional service delivery.

    Our vision: QFES volunteerism 2025

    The following questions provide a vision of a prospective future state for QFES in regards to volunteering – one where the commitment and recognition of all emergency service volunteers, and their invaluable contribution to QFES and their broader communities, is central to the volunteerism program and integrated in all aspects of service support and delivery.

    The public consultation process for online and written submissions for the QFES Volunteerism Strategy Discussion Paper: 2017 closes at 5pm on Saturday, 30 September 2017.

    The purpose of this discussion paper is to open the subject matter for broader engagement and to facilitate debate. Discussions within this discussion paper do not commit Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) to future action, but rather enable broader consultation and dialogue to occur to help inform possible actions or future directions.

    These topics are our starting point for discussion.
