It’s the last week of the first round of consultation about the proposed changes to CFA’s service delivery and support model.  If you haven’t already had your say, now’s the time to do it!

Last week we received great feedback directly from over 300 CFA members around the state who attended the open workshops held by the Executive and Regional Leadership teams to talk through the proposed changes.

Thank you to all attendees for providing your invaluable feedback during these sessions – your thoughts were captured and have been submitted for review by the Executive Leadership Team at the end of the consultation period.

If you weren’t able to attend on of the workshops, there’s still time to provide feedback so don't forget to tell us what you think…

We want to hear from members about their thoughts on the proposals that have been put forward, including:

  • The proposed move from eight to five regions.
  • The proposed move towards a Training and Development state-wide administration and scheduling support service model.
  • The best way to make the revised service delivery model work, including the transfer of responsibility for support services from F&EM to the relevant support directorates.
  • The overall state-wide service support model (Finance, People and Culture, and Asset Maintenance).

It’s important for us to get your thoughts on these concepts before we look at the detail around workflows and structure. Although this initial round of consultation ends this week, we will continue talking with you about our next steps and will need your help and experience even more when it comes time to implement our new model.

Send your feedback by 5pm this Friday 30 August by selecting the ‘Provide feedback' button on the ‘Creating Our Future Together - Next Steps' page on Brigades Online and the CFA intranet. Alternatively you can email This email address is being protected from spambots.
