25km PAST EMERGENCY VEHICLES

  

As rom the 1st September 2014 the 25km past emergency vehicles legislation will come into effect. 

 

SAFECOM has commenced its public awareness campaign which was launched by Minister Piccolo on the 10th August 2014.

Many CFS volunteers will be pleased to see that finally after 8 years of Parliamentary debate that this legislation will finally be enacted – providing volunteers with a safer work place.

The slogan for this campaign is: PROTECT THOSE WHO PROTECT YOU

 

 

 

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.
