2017 CAVFA Survey

NSW RFS Volunteers are invited to participate in influential Volunteer Survey for a second year.


 In 2016, the RFSA encouraged members of the NSW RFS to take part in a nationwide survey of Emergency Management volunteers to gather opinions in order to provide advice direct to Government and Emergency Management sector decision makers on a range of issues, chosen by emergency management volunteers, on matters identified as important to them.  


More than 1,900 NSW RFS members did! Thank you!


It was a great start to NSW participating in this annual survey. Nation-wide more than 6,000 fire service volunteers participated.


The results of both the NSW specific volunteer firefighter responses and the nation-wide results are available below:

Nationwide CAVFA report


NOW we would like to invite volunteers to participate again in 2017.   Please give us your opinions again.


 It is important to continue with the opinion and feedback gathering process in order to track where improvements are needed and being made, and where effort is still needed.


Once again the survey will only take 10 -15 minutes to complete online.  All responses are confidential. For each statement you provide a rating on how important the issue is to you AND then provide a rating on performance.


Survey closes Monday 16 October.


The overall results will assist the RFSA in better representing you and advising key stakeholders on the key issues that matter to you.
