Fire Protection Association Australia (FPAA)

The Tasmania Fire Service (TFS) is an FPAA member and therefore receive the many benefits of the membership, including staying abreast of all of the latest trends and issues within the industry and regular attendance at the annual Fire Australia Conference.  

Training

All TasFire Equipment Fire Equipment Officers complete a full Certificate III qualification in Fire Protection Equipment Inspection and Testing (or equivalent). This qualification contains competencies covering the technical, customer service and Workplace Health and Safety aspect of our industry.

Permits

All of our Fire Equipment Officers and Regional Supervisors hold a permit to inspect, maintain and install fire protection equipment as issued by the TFS. It is a requirement that any person wishing to inspect, maintain or install fire protection equipment in non-residential buildings within Tasmania hold a permit in accordance with the General Fire Regulations 2010.

Equipment selection process

TasFire Equipment rigorously assesses the equipment that we sell. As an arm of the TFS, TasFire Equipment is committed to providing only quality products at competitive prices. A panel of TasFire Equipment staff select the individual items that we will sell on a quality vs value basis.

Insurances

The Tasmania Fire Service holds adequate insurance policies covering Public and Products Liability, Motor Vehicle and Workers Compensation.

Environment

TasFire Equipment is committed to minimising the impact on the environment. Fire extinguisher recycling programs are in place to recycle all the components and fire-fighting chemicals in accordance with environmental requirements. TasFire Equipment is also a collection point for BCF (Halon) type extinguishers which are returned to the National Halon Bank for appropriate storage.

COVID-19 Update from TasFire Equipment

In line with the easing of restrictions, TasFire Equipment has developed a COVID-19 workplace safety plan, as required under the Tasmanian Government’s COVID-19 Safe Workplaces Framework.

This allows us to return to our full range of services and means that all clients on our preventative maintenance schedule will continue to be visited by our technicians for the maintenance of fire protection equipment. To enable us to safely conduct site inspections and for us to comply with our safety plan there are a number of precautions that we are taking to reduce the risks presented by COVID-19. These include:

Our regional shopfronts are open to the public however physical distancing rules apply and we ask that anyone displaying any COVID-19 symptoms do not visit our sites. Contact details will be recorded for all those who visit our shopfronts to enable contact tracing. For anyone not wishing to visit our shopfronts in person, delivery can be arranged for any equipment needed.

We will keep you informed of any further changes to our services in light of new or different advice from government authorities. We appreciate your understanding in these challenging times and encourage you to contact us on 1300 008 337 or tfe@fire.tas.gov.au if you have any questions or concerns regarding this advice.

The TasFire Equipment Team.
