Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) is the voice of CFA Volunteers. It brings together the Victorian Urban Fire Brigades Association and the Victorian Rural Fire Brigades Association both of which are established under the Country Fire Authority Act.
VFBV is the single and unified body representing all CFA Volunteers to the CFA Board and Management and to Governments, Ministers, Members of Parliament, councils and instrumentalities, business and the public.
Through a statewide network of Regional Councils and elected volunteer representatives, VFBV maintains direct links with grass roots volunteers over their issues, needs and concerns.
The VFBV Board meets with the CFA Board as the peak forum for strategic consultation on matters impacting on volunteers whether policy development, volunteer welfare, volunteer support, equipment and infrastructure, volunteer development or planning for CFA’s future.
VFBV shares with CFA a commitment to a community based volunteer and integrated fire and emergency service which delivers a safer Victoria.
