BFB volunteer firefighters are trained to operate equipment, vehicles and appliances used in fire suppression operations.

BFB volunteers are trained in:

  • Personal and team safety
  • Fire suppression methods
  • Vehicle driving on and off road
  • Communications
  • First aid
  • Leadership and emergency management procedures
