Over the past 24 hours there has been significant interest in and media coverage of Monash University’s Fiskville Firefighters’ Health Study of people who worked and trained at Fiskville between 1971 and 1999.

Some of you may be feeling anxious or concerned about what this means for you.


As mentioned in my blog yesterday, CFA is providing welfare assistance and support, including through the Voluntary Health Surveillance Program for people in the 'high' and 'medium' groups identified in the Joy Report.


If you are a member of one of these two groups, it’s not too late to join the program if you chose originally not to participate. You can contact CFA’s Health Surveillance Coordinator, Andrew Dudley, via phone (03) 9262 8836 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
