CFA’s volunteers are being celebrated this week in light of National Volunteer Week. Across the state, events such as barbecues, morning teas and movie nights are held to acknowledge the volunteers and their families for the sacrifices they make day in, day out.

Last night, Monday 11 May, Diamond Creek Fire Brigade hosted the launch of the digital storytelling workshop stories. Acting Executive Director Operational Training & Volunteerism Kate Harrap took to the stage and also launched the Volunteerism Strategy.

“It’s our formal commitment to volunteerism moving forward,” she said. “We want to actively engage and involve volunteers in decision making and cultivate an environment where more voices are heard. The digital storytelling workshop is an example of this.”

CFA Chief Officer Euan Ferguson added, “The concept of storytelling is very powerful; it passes on valuable knowledge to future generations and potentially to those young men and women who are considering joining CFA.”

“Being a volunteer in this society places you on the pinnacle of citizenship. In light of National Volunteer Week, thank you for what you do for your individual societies and for the ethos of volunteerism.”
