The Volunteer Fire and Rescue Services Association of WA (Inc.) Youth Committee formed this year to focus on the recruitment and retention of youth aged between 18 and 30 within the VFRS. With three executive members guiding us, we have combined our ideas and concerns to start working on new initiatives and improvements.
We are currently raising awareness of the Committee to youth volunteers with the aid of presentations, programs, public events, social media, and general discussions. We are also attending meetings and conferences with DFES and the VFRS Association in order to represent youth interests.
The committee members are:
Central Wheatbelt Zone: Jodie Breese (Toodyay)
Brett Turnbull (Northam
Goldfields Zone: TK Kippin (Coolgardie)
Great Southern Zone: Nathan Cook (Wagin)
Metropolitan Zone: Kieran Schoof (Armadale)
Northern Zone: Glen Auzins (Jurien Bay)
South West Zone: Scott Britza (Harvey)
A representative was sought from each Zone, and we are currently in discussions with the North West Zone.
Please feel free to discuss any ideas or concerns with representatives.
