Summary The LG Functional Support Group has been working with the CFS on Joint Operating Guidelines related to Bushfire Operations – CFS (updating the 2014 version). This updated guideline is now operational and all councils are encouraged to make themselves familiar with this JOG.

What is a LGFSG Joint Operating Guideline?

Joint Operating Guidelines (JOGs) are a document that gives guidance on how LGSFG (LG Sector) will operate with other organisations/agencies. If a Council adopts a JOG then it should be followed, but it is up to each LGO (Council) to decide if a JOG suits their requirements.
