You might not think they have a lot in common, but new hose deployment systems, helmet torch brackets, our new website, automated fire signs, mobile training props, and community bushfire exercises all come under the umbrella of CFA projects.

These were just a few of the fifty projects that came together for one day for CFA’s first ever Project Expo, an informal pilot event for CFA members and agency partners.

Despite some patchy weather the expo attracted a steady stream of visitors who took the opportunity to view the new Scoresby Hoselayer, Mobile Eduacation Unit, aerial pumper and other specialist vehicles as well as the new 1.2.4D Light Tanker, heading inside to take in displays incorporating a range of technology, mapping, infrastructure, health, training, community engagement and IT developments – even a model house courtesy of the Barwon South West and  Home Bushfire Advice Service teams. 

The event, which attracted participation from state headquarters-based initiatives as well as those based at Eastern Metro, Southern Metro and Gippsland Regions, was also a good chance for project teams to get a better feel for what was going on outside their areas.

Images and photography taken during the day will continue to be edited and shared with CFA members over coming months. David Spokes, Executive Director Performance and Strategy, said that not many people realised just how many projects – and the sheer range of activities – were undertaken by CFA. 

“Projects are a really important part of the way we do business and in particular the way we bring about change,” he said.
