Statement from MFB Chief Officer Dan Stephens regarding Fire Rescue Victoria Legislation:

I welcome the FRV legislation and am supportive of the opportunity to enhance Fire and Rescue Services in Victoria and our community service delivery.

FRV represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a new career Fire and Rescue Service to improve community safety for Victorians.

The health and wellbeing of our workforce and the safety of the community are our highest priorities.

MFB is an outstanding organisation that has consistently delivered for the community over the past 128 years and our reputation is highly regarded.

The same is true of the CFA and we will respect the history of both organisations as we work to build FRV.

We all have a role to play in making FRV the best it possibly can be for the community we serve.  

MFB will continue to work collaboratively with Government, our CFA colleagues and other stakeholders to establish FRV, and it remains very much business as usual during this time.  

The volunteers are an essential resource within the fire and rescue service capability in Victoria – we simply couldn’t function without the volunteer component within the CFA.
