New NSW headquarters and state manager for FPA Australia

Posted on : Wednesday, 30 August 2017

Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) will establish a New South Wales state headquarters in Sydney's inner suburbs in October in response to the state's unprecedented growth in membership.


The state headquarters will be led by a new state manager, who will be responsible for overall operations of FPA Australia's activities in NSW.


"Our new NSW headquarters and state manager will have a significant focus on engagement with NSW members, government and other key stakeholders," said FPA Australia CEO Scott Williams.


"They will also help strengthen our accreditation frameworks, and support all the Association's activities to deliver better fire safety outcomes for the community."


New South Wales has the largest FPA Australia membership of any state and territory, and growth in recent years has been significant. The new state headquarters will help support those members and complement the Association's current training centre in Mascot, which opened in September last year.


The state manager position will be advertised shortly, and FPA Australia aims to fill the role in October. Further appointments for the NSW headquarters are expected to follow.


Beyond the expansion in NSW, FPA Australia is also working towards putting in place additional resources in Queensland in the near future. As another key growth state, the Association is currently exploring options to better serve Queensland members with a regional presence.
