An amazing response with membership applications coming in from all parts of the state!...
If you have sent in an application in over the last couple of days, we are going through the pile at the moment and you will hear back as soon as possible.
We have had some questions over what we will be doing with your details. The easiest and only explanation is that we are required to know that you are a registered volunteer member with the CFA, your mailing or residential address and contact details are to keep a register of members as required by the Associations Act and most importantly, to correspond with our members. **No 3rd Parties will have access to your information and all details are kept securely and privately.**
If anyone has any questions, concerns or just general enquiries, you can email these to admin@vvfa.com.au or PM to our Facebook page and one of the committee members will respond accordingly.
Stay safe,


The Victorian Volunteer Firefighters Association (VVFA) was established on September 11th 2016.
We were motivated by widespread dissatisfaction amongst volunteers due to recent and historical actions by Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) purporting to represent a unified voice for volunteer CFA members.

The volunteer members present at the inaugural meeting resolved to provide CFA volunteers an alternative voice and representation. The Executive and Committee were elected from the members and agreed to the Purposes and Rules of the Association.

The Committee was determined to setup and prepare VVFA for a surge in broader membership. Since the inaugural meeting we were certified as an Incorporate Association on the 4th October 2016.

We are hearing of CFA brigades that do not want affiliation with the VFBV and members want representation other than VFBV. We are publicly offering an alternative voice. 

This will be a challenging and exciting time as VVFA have no staff or funds and rely on personal donations and our own time in addition to our CFA commitments.

We are not affiliated with any political party or industry body. As per the Purposes of the VVFA, we seek to work collaboratively with CFA, key stakeholders and career staff as we aim to be recognised as a respected and progressive Association. We are seeking an independent body to manage the volunteer welfare fund, and would also like to be recognised by the state government as a representative body for individual volunteers.

VVFA are looking for members that share similar values and beliefs and support the Purposes of the Association. As a new Asssociation you will be part of its development to grow into a progressive and respected organisation moving forward with a modern CFA to better serve the community.

Would you like to help?

To effectively operate, we are seeking donations to fund administrative costs etc. No amount is too small
