As part of National Volunteer Week, CFA and Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) are organising two State Control Centre (SCC) tours for our volunteers. 

The SCC is an important base that is run by EMV. The centre is instrumental in working together with many emergency services to coordinate, lead and organise initiatives to support all communities.

The tours will be on Thursday 12 May and Friday 13 May from 3.30pm to 5pm. They will start with a short overview of the SCC workings and each agency’s usage.

Participants will then be split up into smaller groups and taken on a guided tour of the sections within SCC to find out for themselves the work that is accomplished using real-life situations.

The five sections are:

  •          Intelligence including mapping
  •          Social media
  •          Public Information
  •          FBan – Fire Behaviour Analysis
  •          Airdesk
