CFA vol­un­teers asked to share their views

Alpine Observer - - News -

VIC­TO­RIA’S 54,000 CFA vol­un­teers are be­ing en­cour­aged to share their views and in­flu­ence pol­icy by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the an­nual on­line Vol­un­teer Wel­fare and Ef­fi­ciency Sur­vey.

The sur­vey is man­aged by the peak body for CFA mem­bers, Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gades Vic­to­ria (VFBV), and gives vol­un­teers the op­por­tu­nity to have their say about key mat­ters im­pact­ing on their wel­fare, ef­fi­ciency and sat­is­fac­tion.

The sur­vey re­sults will be an­a­lysed and re­ported by VFBV as anony­mous sum­mary data to the Coun­try Fire Au­thor­ity, Emer­gency Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria, all Vic­to­rian state MPs and other key de­ci­sion mak­ers.

VFBV CEO An­drew Ford said the re­cently pub­lished re­sults of the 2017 sur­vey had been in­valu­able in pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion to VFBV and shap­ing pol­icy, adding that the sur­vey was pow­er­ful be­cause it was de­signed by, and for, CFA vol­un­teers and run by their in­de­pen­dent peak body, free from gov­ern­ment in­flu­ence.

VFBV pres­i­dent Nev Jones said the sur­vey gives the VFBV un­par­al­leled con­fi­dence as the voice for CFA vol­un­teers.

The 2018 VFBV Vol­un­teer Wel­fare and Ef­fi­ciency Sur­vey is open un­til the end of Oc­to­ber and CFA vol­un­teers can reg­is­ter at www.vfbv. com.au or email VFBV at vfbv@vfbv.com.au.
