The Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre (VEMTC) at Central Highlands is CFA’s newest, state-of-the-art training centre. It is located on approximately 40 hectares in an industrial estate on the outskirts of Ballan in Victoria's west.
Central Highlands is one of eight VEMTCs operated by CFA in Victoria, with the others at Bangholme, Huntly, Longerenong, Penshurst, Sunraysia, Wangaratta, and West Sale.
CFA volunteers from across the state will be able to train at this facility, along with other emergency service personnel.
The facility provides a range of real-life scenarios for emergency service workers to practice their skills in a safe environment, based on the types of incidents they are likely to be faced with.
