The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded, community-based emergency service 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.

• Proven record of achievement in business planning and service delivery reporting.
