A woman who was rescued from a cave has contacted CFA to thank rescuers for their "kindness and support".

Kim Van Dyk was rescued when a group of CFA members driving home from a training course were flagged down by a person alerting them of Kim's fall.

“Thank you to everyone who assisted in getting me out of Dicksons B cave at Murrindal,” she said. “I appreciate the kindness and support given to me by all the rescuers.

“The breaks in my leg are slowly healing and I am feeling a lot better. Thank you again.“

The eight-hour rescue was a joint effort with Buchan, Lakes Entrance, Morwell, Traralgon and Dandenong brigades joining other members from Districts 10 and 11.

Other emergency services were also involved including Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria and SES.
