CFS Region 1

Region 1 covers an area of 10 000 square kilometres of the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island with a population base in excess of 250 000 people. The Region offers great diversity from the urban area surrounding Adelaide and the large communities of the hills, through to rural activities including cropping, grazing, and world class wine regions.

The Region also includes substantial areas of National Parks, Local Sanctuaries and Forestry Reserves, which are home to a diverse range of flora and fauna.

Crews respond to the full range of emergencies including bush and grass fires, structural fires, road crash rescues, and hazardous materials incidents.

Region 1 has over 3 000 dedicated and highly trained volunteers who staff 83 Fire Brigades and respond to thousands of incidents across the Region each year. Whilst Region 1 has the smallest geographic area, it has the most volunteers and responds to the largest number of incidents.
