CFA Split?

The CFA will become a volunteer-only organisation ... under a new plan by the Victorian government.
Finalising a work agreement with fire-fighters has been a political nightmare for Daniel Andrews ... the new plan would allow him to work around Federal laws introduced to protect volunteers.

CFA
Under the changes a new agency called Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) would have all paid firefighters and fight fires in Melbourne and major regional centres.
The CFA would be separate and contain only volunteers ...
Andrew Ford from Volunteer Firefighters is not happy with the plans ... and that paid and volunteer firefighters work well together.
CFA volunteers serving at the state's 35 integrated stations will be able to stay there.
