The face of Burnside Country Fire Service volunteers has changed over the years. From early beginnings as the Burnside Hills Fire Fighting Fund, support from our local communities has always been strong. Our members are made up of students, trades people, accountants, local business owners, Government employees and other emergency services staff (Metropolitan Fire Service, SA Ambulance Service and SA Police personnel).

If you are interested in joining the Burnside CFS, there are

a number of pre-requisites that must be met before an application can be


-You live within 3 km of the station:

-There is a vacant position within the Brigade - Burnside CFS manages a ceiling of 35 members at any one time;

-You are physically and mentally fit;

-You are able to respond to the station to attend incidents; and

-You are over 18 years of age.

If you are willing to donate time to the Burnside CFS, but would like to remain non operational, you may be able to join as a non operational member.

We only respond to recruitment enquiries during active campaigns.


Donations made to the Burnside CFS will assist in providing adequate training and infrastructure for our volunteer Fire Fighters.
