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 The Code of Conduct has been updated and the previous Code, issued in 2006, has been withdrawn.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.
