Child Safety

Children have much to offer our community as our future emergency responders and champions of public safety.

As a child safe, child friendly organisation, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and the emergency services community involves, respects, values and protects children at all times.

When engaging in child related work with DFES you must provide a current Western Australian Working with Children Check and have completed the online child safety training.

Our child safety and Working with Children Check policies, linked below, provide direction about the behaviour, attitudes and responsibilities that are expected when working with young people.

Behaviour that has, or may, put a child at risk of emotional, physical or psychological harm, including the use of social media, must be reported.

A child or young person may make a complaint or report a concern themselves. They may also ask someone they feel comfortable with to make a report for them.

If you have experienced, witnessed, or been made aware of activities or behaviours which may cause a child physical or psychological harm, it is important to advise DFES via the Contact Us button below.

All reporting of suspicious or wrongful behaviour will remain confidential unless the sharing of information is required by law.

If your report is life threatening or poses an immediate threat of danger to a person contact the police on 000.
