The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is a modern, inclusive, resilient and future-focused firefighting agency proudly protecting Victorians from fire and other emergencies, as well as helping communities prepare for a range of hazards, threats and disasters.
We operate throughout Victoria, including urban areas of Melbourne, protecting communities by fighting house and building fires, bushfires, undertaking trench rescues, helping in other emergencies, and more.
We’re also playing an increasingly critical role in emergency medical response (EMR), providing medical treatment to Priority Zero calls before paramedics arrive.
CFA has more than 1,300 career firefighters, 57,000 volunteer firefighters and 1,500 support staff working together to protect lives and property. Our organisation is grouped into 21 districts and five regions, continuing our impressive history of supporting rural and regional communities through education, support and fundraising. CFA is a great place to volunteer and work.
