In rolling out our vision and mission as part of the "Creating our Future Together" program, we were describing CFA as a community-based fire and emergency services organisation. Feedback from our members is that we should be referred to as a volunteer and community-based fire and emergency services organisation. The Board formally adopted this description, which acknowledges both our volunteer and community base, at its July meeting.
Reaffirming who we are and what we do unites us and helps focus our energies as preparations for the next fire season pick up pace. Final positions on community safety policies for the 2011-2012 fire season were progressed at a multi-agency work shop in July. Plans are in place for multi-agency pre fire season briefings to take place from September.
