Position Details

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded community based emergency services organisations. We respond to fire and other emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whilst our firefighters are the cornerstone of CFA services, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important in helping to protect lives and property.

Risk Intelligence is the combination of knowledge, experience, data and information. Working with a range of stakeholders across Victoria, the Risk Intelligence Team is responsible for the collection of data, analysis and providing information and intelligence to support planning.

The Coordinator Risk Intelligence, while under the general guidance of the Manager Risk Intelligence, is responsible for the delivery and continuous improvement of the Victorian Fire Risk Register – Bushfire. This role also contributes to the development and implementation of the Victorian Fire Risk Register – Structure. The position may assist with tasking and supervision of project staff.
