Eight volunteers from across the regions will take part in this year’s annual Moomba walk parade next Monday in support of our very own CFA Moomba Queen April Himmelreich.

Earlier this year, Moomba organisers made the decision to honour each of the emergency services with their very own Moomba King or Queen in order to show support and to recognise the courage and community spirit and celebrate the contribution of all community and emergency service organisations across Victoria.

Ian Hamley (Portland Brigade), Dave O’Toole (Glenmaggie Brigade), Scott James (Whitehead Creek Tarcombe Brigade,) Phil Graham (Heyfield Brigade), Tracey Mastro (Heathcote Brigade), Dave Evered (Basin Brigade), Emily Wilkinson (Basin Brigade) and Cameron Oliver( Basin Brigade); will all walk alongside each of the other seven community and emergency service providers including, Victoria Police, Victorian State Emergency Service, Ambulance Victoria, Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Department of Sustainability & Environment and Salvation Army.

More than 1500 parade participants, floats and performers will make their way through the City and along St Kilda Road.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to see who our Victorian heroes are. Good luck and thanks to the volunteer firefighters representing CFA on the day, you will do CFA proud.
