Who Is the CFS Promotions Unit ?

The CFS Promotions Unit was formed in 1994 to promote the role of the CFS and the volunteers that make the CFS the great organisation that it is. It was found that prior to the unit, most people were unaware that the CFS did more than just bush fires.

The website started in 1996 as part of the CFS mobile display unit known as the Pantech. In 1998, the website was launched on to the Internet, with a major overhaul of the website in 2001 and again in 2005. In 2012, the website has evolved to include a large history section to compliment the up to date information on each brigade, as well as expanding to cover many other South Australian Emergency Services.

The website is a way for brigades to recruit and inform members, to assist the public in understanding something about the CFS - including their local brigade - and to promote the volunteering ethic.

The Website Administrators - Pip & Ashley, who are both CFS volunteers, run the site, with input from other CFS members and the public, all over the state. The information on this website is updated regularly, through mailouts to brigades, and input via the website.

Photographs are updated whenever possible. While most of the photographs are taken by the Website Administrators on their travels across the state, it is often difficult for them to update those photos on an annual basis. The Website Administrators welcome suitable photographs from anyone.

This is not the official site of the SA Country Fire Service or the Country Fire Service Volunteers Association. Their official sites can be accessed by clicking on the logos. This site is however operated with the full co-operation of the SA Country Fire Service (CFS) Headquarters and individual CFS stations. It also has the full endorsement and support of the Country Fire Service Volunteers Association (CFSVA).

Further details on the funding and ownership of this site can be found in the legal section in the menu bar on the left of screen.
