Advocacy and support header image2

December 2020 saw Fire and Emergency reach out for feedback on their plans for their Behaviour and Conduct Office and we encouraged members to provide input; we were pleased to see the engagement of many members with this proposal via the Consider This platform.  The UFBA’s latest submission on the BCO combines this Member information with our experiences in this area, particularly that from our Advocacy and Support team who deal daily with those right in the heart of conflict and disputes. With Members we've already contributed a crucial voice in developing the code of conduct and behaviour standards, and our submission aims to ensure the role the BCO plays is fair to all, applies the laws of natural justice, and has external oversight.
