In 2011, the Jones Report of Inquiry into the Effect of Arrangements made by CFA on its Volunteers was tabled.

In response to the Jones report, CFA developed a broad implementation action plan.

We are now two years into the implementation of the Jones recommendations. A video posted on CFA TV provides an update on the initiatives that have been rolled out, including the following examples:

  • Upgrade of Victorian Emergency Management Training Campuses located at Wangaratta, Longerenong, Penshurst, Huntly and West Sale
  • Establishment of a new training campus at Sunraysia
  • Unified approach to training
  • First joint CFA/MFB recruit training course
  • F&EM Roles & Pathways Map
  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
  • Revised Brigade Operational Skills Profile (BOSP)
  • New “Who can Train and Assess?” poster and DVD
  • Additional mobile props
  • New Off-Road Driver Training Facilities
  • Tools and Resources developed to support the recruitment and retention of members
  • Brigade Sustainability Pilot
  • Wellbeing Pilot
