CFA is encouraging brigades across the state to compete in this year’s CFA/VFBV State Firefighter Championships in March.


Mooroopna Recreation Reserve will again be the site of the events; with the Urban Junior State Championships kicking off on 16 and 17 March. The Senior Urban and Senior Rural events will be held at the same site the following weekend, 23 and 24 March. 

CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan said the State Championships have a rich tradition and are an integral part of CFA. 

“The Championships are a great opportunity for our members to engage in some friendly competition with their brigade and fellow firefighters,” CO Heffernan said. 

“It’s also a great way for the community to see what we do and hopefully we can inspire them to join their local brigades. 

“I highly recommend brigades get involved in the event which includes practical firefighting activities utilising hoses, hydrants and other equipment. It’s also fantastic for teamwork and comradeship.” 

Hannah Logie from Strathmerton Fire Brigade, who has competed in the State Championships for the past eight years, encourages other brigades to take part because she says it’s the best two weekends of the year. 

“I have been competing since I was 11 years old and my whole family has been involved over the years too,” Hannah said.  

“It’s a great event because you make friends, you get fit and most importantly, you have a good laugh. 

“What I love most is the people I’m around all day, it’s a really close-knit group. If you’re considering joining, just do it, it’s the best fun!” 

Interested brigades need to register by 18 February 2024. Nominations are online via the VFBV website: 2024 State Championships - Entries Now Open (
