Individual brigades are free to invite local MP’s, including those from the Opposition, to functions and other events. Official events such as station openings and truck handovers are traditionally the preserve of the Government of the day.

CFA is apolitical.

The email in question simply reinforced a long held protocol ensuring CFA assets and brigades are not used for political purposes.

CFA fire stations and equipment are government owned community assets which should be used for the purpose they were intended – protecting the community. It is important they remain free from politicking and electioneering.
