Web Content Tile

CFA runs seven of the eight Victorian Emergency Management Training Centres (VEMTC). The campuses provide firefighters and recruits with practical firefighting scenarios in a controlled and realistic environment. This is essential in developing and maintaining the skills needed to fulfil our mission of protecting the lives and property of Victorian communities.

 The training campuses are purpose-built, specialising in the simulation of scenarios that replicate unique field conditions specific to their region.

The CFA VEMTC sites are at:

  • Bangholme
  • Wangaratta
  • Longerenong
  • Penshurst
  • Huntly
  • West Sale
  • Sunraysia (Mildura)

An eighth site, run by Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB), is located at Craigieburn.

On 15 May 2017, the State Government announced the purchase of a 35 hectare site at nearby Ballan for the new VEMTC – Central Highlands.
