UFBA Strategic Plan

The UFBA's new strategic plan was released in May 2015

The plan summarises the main activities UFBA will focus on over the next three years to make sure your needs are independently represented at a local and national level.

Being a member of a fire brigade takes considerable commitment and time.

Rural populations are dwindling and people who could volunteer can face considerable obstacles (employer support issues, pressure of work and family commitments, and so on). Meanwhile, we face more extreme weather events and medical calls.

This all has significant implications for the protection and resilience of our communities. How brigades survive and flourish in this environment is a major challenge.

The UFBA brings together the collective strength of over 500 brigades and the communities they serve into one independent, united and powerful voice.

This plan focuses us on making sure that your voice is heard and your needs met.

We have deliberately kept our strategic ambitions to a one-page plan. We know volunteers are not interested in lots of paper. Our consultation process told us this.

Importantly, it provides the necessary focus for responding to the emerging challenges identified by you in our survey of community and brigade needs.

Work is now underway to achieve the strategic plan objectives to:

We recognise that our actions are the key to delivering excellent advocacy and support services to our members.

We will keep you up to date with progress.
