In a new blog post, CFA Chair Claire Higgins discusses both the Jones Inquiry Implementation Action Plan and CFA's response to the Victorian Auditor-General's Office's (VAGO) Managing Emergency Services Volunteers report.

The latter report was tabled in State Parliament in February 2014. It assessed whether CFA and SES effectively and efficiently manage volunteers. It looked at whether strategic and operational planning is adequate to identify and address volunteer resourcing requirements, including the capacity and capability of the volunteer workforce.

The particular focus areas were attraction, recruitment, retention and support as well as the adequacy and effectiveness of training and education and the allocation and use of volunteers including surge capacity.
