This year CFA Sunday will be held on 24 November 2013. It’s a chance for Victorians to have fun with CFA members, and for brigades to unite.  Last year, more than 280 brigades opened their doors to the public.

We’re encouraging brigades to get out and about in their community – open your station doors or take CFA Sunday to local markets, town halls, parks, shopping precincts or anywhere else that works for you.

Brigades can host a CFA Sunday event with a theme that is most relevant to them, such as:

  • Summer or home fire safety
  • Recruitment
  • Brigade information
  • Fire training activities demonstrations
  • Kids activities
  • Fundraising
  • Recognition for supporters of the brigade (such as employers)

There’s already lots of materials available on the Template Toolkit to help brigades get the message out there.  You can find this information by clicking on the ‘Very Handy Template Toolkit’ on the homepage of the intranet or Brigades online, then selecting ‘Marketing Materials’ and scrolling to the ‘CFA Sunday Promotional Materials’ button at the bottom of the page.

Participating brigades will have access to a variety of core summer publications (such as ‘Check the Signs’ and ‘Can I Can’t I’) and funding to make the day the best it can be – simply contact your region’s Community Education Coordinator.

Register online at by Friday 1 November.  

So get on board and help make CFA Sunday a date to remember!

Read the story "CFA Sunday around the State!" for a heap of great events from last year, and get some inspiration for your event this year.
