Annual Report

Our annual report provides an overview of the organisation's achievements for the year, with a focus on initiatives that support volunteers, our engagement with the community to deliver fire safety advice and the work undertaken in research and innovation to improve our response capability.

We also feature a number of profiles that highlight diversity in our membership. 

The report gives an update on the CFA Capability Measures Program, with progress reported against the key projects. We have also highlighted our progress to meet our strategic objectives and outcomes. These initiatives are laid out according to our four strategic goals: 

  • We put the community at the centre of everything we do 
  • We deliver programs and services that make a positive difference 
  • We provide a great place to volunteer and work 
  • We are a progressive emergency service.

During 2022-23 CFA strengthened its support for volunteers through a number of significant initiatives including: 

  • New wildfire personal protective clothing
  • Continued rollout of our workwear, which passed 10,000 sets delivered
  • Crew and strike team leader training
  • Tanker Replacement Program
  • Station replacement Program
  • Baseline Capability Profiling app to allow brigades to see data relevant to capability, such as their members’ training and response activities.


The CFA Board continued to focus on strengthening CFA’s culture following the landmark external review in 2022. The Board is closely monitoring progress against the Culture Review Implementation Plan, which sets out a roadmap for delivering on the recommendations for improving our diversity and inclusion and ensuring CFA is a great place to volunteer and work. The Board was also strongly focused on the timely provision of training for our members.

In 2022-23 more than 14,000 volunteers received training through CFA programs.
