Fire Safety in the Home - Other Resources

Basic home fire safety information is now included in the qualifications for a range of community services workers. The lesson materials for this have been centrally developed to ensure their application and use in all states and territories. In addition to their use in formal training the material is also recommended for use by community agencies in staff induction for new workers and skills maintenance for existing workers.
