Revised Code of Conduct and new Volunteer Policy
2 July 2018
All Civil Defence members should note these two important new documents. The Code of Conduct has been updated and the previous Code, issued in 2006, has been withdrawn.
A new Volunteer Policy has been introduced. The purpose of this policy is to guide volunteering within Civil Defence by:
- reinforcing the importance of volunteering to Civil Defence;
- establishing basic values and attitudes towards volunteering;
- setting out the responsibilities of Civil Defence towards its volunteers; and
- setting out the rights and responsibilities of people who volunteer for Civil Defence.
