Country Fire Authority (CFA) History Project

I found this over on the CFA site, thought I'd copy it here to get the message out even further.
Victoria's CFA is a fantastic organisation mostly made up of volunteers who unquestioningly give their time to help others, a history of these people is well worth it.

The association that represents Victoria’s 60,000 CFA volunteers is preparing to publish its history, and we need your help.

A team of volunteers at Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) has begun gathering photographs, documents, stories and other items for the history, which looks back into the 19th century and the formation of the Victorian Urban Fire Brigades Association and the Victorian Rural Fire Brigades Association.

The associations have been the voices of the volunteers for many generations, and we are looking for the triumphs, the tragedies and the characters that have been part of that story.

Anyone who can help can contact Bill Rodda at or on (03) 5655 1389.
