Country Fire Authority


The Country Fire Authority is one of the worlds largest volunteer based emergency services. There are around 58,000 volunteer members supported by over 400 career fire fighters and officers and more than 700 career support and administrative staff.

Situated in Victoria, there are 2.5 million people and 150,182 square kilometres of land in the CFA area. This area includes more that 980,000 homes, and covers all of rural Victoria, and the provincial cities and towns (except State forests and National Parks).

Our brigades respond to a range of different incidents and our broader activities include community education and fire investigation.

The ties between CFA and state government, local government, industry and brigades are essential to the successful operation of CFA. As a community service organisation, CFA brigades are strongly supported by their local communities in responding to meet Victorian fire safety and emergency management needs.
