SECTOR REFORM MEETINGS

 

Please note that neither the CFS Executive nor the CFSVA have formed an official position on the future model or structure of the emergency services at this time. This is a matter for discussion with the Government at the conclusion of the ...roundtable discussions and in negotiation with the representative bodies of the sector staff and volunteers. However, if you have strong views on what you believe should be considered in sector reform, it is recommended that you voice these early with the Minister’s Office using the email address contained in the attached documents so that your views can be considered.

Virtues of a CFS Volunteer

The eight-pointed star is the traditional insignia of the SA Country Fire Service (CFS), formerly known as the Emergency Fire Service (EFS).

The star is not unique to the CFS as it is recognised by fire services all over the world.
It is otherwise referred to as the Cross of Saint John which originally emerged from the Maltese Cross.
Used by the Knights of Saint John during the Crusades in Jerusalem, the points on the Maltese Cross represented eight different virtues of Knighthood:

•    Tact
•    Loyalty
•    Dexterity
•    Observation
•    Sympathy
•    Explicitness
•    Gallantry
•    Perseverance

Over time, firefighters have adopted these same virtues bringing about a commonality between fire services all over the world.
In most cases the only difference between fire service insignias is the centrepiece, which is specific to the organisation.
The CFS Star is seen on the official uniform worn by volunteers and staff.
However, the CFS also has a corporate logo, which represents the State in Australia in which it serves and is displayed on all vehicles and infrastructure.
