Supporting CFA volunteers is essential to the future safety of Victoria.
A range of increasing demands has impacted CFA. The needs of volunteers in terms of training, brigade support and equipment have been raised by a number of reviews. To date, actions to address these issues have been insufficient.
CFA must be supported to maintain its knowledge and experience and to attract new volunteers to reflect Victoria’s changing community.
To address these issues, CFA will be restored to a volunteer and community focused firefighting organisation, further enshrined in law.
Additionally, CFA’s 1,220 volunteer brigades will be provided with extra support and resources so they can continue to make their vital contribution to Victoria’s emergency management.
