I am always humbled and inspired by the continued contribution of our members to the Victorian community – especially in our support of the Good Friday Appeal.
As another year draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the dedication and passion of our people and thank you for your efforts throughout the year.
Today (5 December) is International Volunteer Day, recognising volunteers worldwide for the contribution they make to their communities - in particular, the work they do to build resilient communities.
CEO/Chief Officer Steve Warrington provides an update on preparing for the season ahead, and a few activities going on at CFA.
Everything we do at CFA is underpinned by our values; and it’s these values being lived by our people that our Spirit of CFA Awards celebrates.
I wanted to draw your attention to the AFAC19 conference which is being held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 27 – 30 August, and encourage all of you to consider attending in any capacity you can.
When there’s a job to do it just gets done. That’s the spirit of our volunteers. That’s the spirit that makes CFA great. And it’s that spirit we celebrate this National Volunteer Week.
As acting Chief Officer, it was with great pride that I presented CFA’s contribution last Friday to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
CFA members have been passionately supporting the Good Friday Appeal for over 60 years.
As we continue to monitor the fire threat right across the state, it’s great to have the opportunity to showcase our skills through the annual State Championships.
