“Even though the Independent Fiskville Investigation has created an interruption to our everyday work, the silver lining is that Fiskville will continue to grow and we will still be a training college of excellence.
“Fiskville has passed the workplace safety tests and there is more expenditure on infrastructure to grow the site further. Our focus now is on ensuring Fiskville continues to function ‘business as usual’ and as a safe workplace for everyone.
“Our people are committed and passionate about Fiskville and it’s been difficult to see the media spotlight placed on Fiskville as a result of the investigation. The actions that took place happened in the past and unfortunately inaccurate information about the site today has been published.
“However, we will still focus on making sure the college is not only state-of-the-art to train and live, but also a great conference centre.
“In November, we’ll have a communications tower and full connectivity across the site for phone reception as well as Wi-Fi.
“We are also building a business centre on site so that members and visitors can maintain their usual lives and businesses when they visit and also keep in touch with their families through email and Skype.
“We’re here to stay and will make it a fantastic college for everyone. Both Justin and I have moved our families here because we believe in the college.
“We’ve had a lot of support from some of the CFA people who have assisted us – phone calls and emails and words of support in really hard times – those things are really appreciated.”
