The Juvenile and Family Fire Awareness Program (JAFFA) is recruiting! We are looking for firefighters who are passionate about child safety and have a few spare hoursa month to educate young people on the consequences of fire play.

Expressions of interest are being called from firefighters from across WA wishing to be considered for the role of JAFFA Support Officer.

We are especially keen to recruit firefighters from:

· Metro North Coastal region

· Metro North East region

· Carnarvon

· Geraldton

· Northam

JAFFA Support Officers are specially trained firefighters who provide tailored fire safety talks to young people involved in fire lighting. These talks are usually delivered in the young person’s home and may be delivered in one session or over many sessions, according to the needs of the young person and their family. On average a JAFFA session will take up to 2 hours. After the visit, JAFFA Support Officers complete a report
that they submit to the JAFFA Coordinator.

Firefighters interested in becoming a JAFFA Support Officer are asked to complete an Expression of Interest form located on the JAFFA page of the Volunteer Portal and submit to the JAFFA Coordinator by email (jaffa@dfes.wa.gov.au) before 9am on Monday 20 August 2018. You can access the EOI form here.
