CFA and MFB to be Carved Up

Local Volunteer Fire Brigades not Happy!

CFA and MFB to be Carved Up

Last night Cabinet passed a radical plan to carve up the CFA and MFB - moving all paid fire fighters to a new service called Fire Rescue Victoria, while the CFA will continue as a volunteer only organisation.

Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria has issued a statement that the plan will undermine community safety and cost taxpayers.

News Corp sources indicate the reforms will take two years to implement.
