 Construction works at the new CFA Regional Training Campus in Sunraysia are well advanced providing North West Victoria with its own training campus.

Work recently finished on the surrounding roads, services infrastructure, fencing, four Practice Area Drill(PADs) and temporary facilities.

Training at the location on Nineteenth Street in Mildura is planned to commence around October     this year, so members in the Sunraysia district will not have to travel long distances to access combined and hot fire training.

The location was selected based on feedback received from the Loddon Mallee Region Steering Committee and the Sunraysia Campus Users Group. Local members, VFBV representatives, career firefighters and the Department of Environment were consulted in the site selection process. Victoria Police, SES and Rural Fire Service (NSW) were also part o fthe process.

Improved accessibility to training facilities for volunteers was raised in the 2011 Jones Report of Inquiry into the Effect of Arrangements made by CFA on its Volunteers.
