THE Bangholme CFA site will share in $20 million from the State Government for upgrades at the seven regional training grounds.
The cash, announced in last month’s State Budget, will enable small-scale clean-up works, new water treatment plants, upgraded drainage systems and more catchment dams.
CFA Chief Officer Joe Buffone on Friday 13 May said local contractors would be engaged to conduct the works where possible.
He said the investment would give CFA members and the community confidence that the CFA’s regional training facilities were safe and effective.
“Training has always been a key priority for CFA to ensure our members have the skills and knowledge to keep Victoria safe,” he said.
“This funding ensures we can revitalise our training grounds as we prepare to meet the challenges of the next 20 years.
“These training grounds are vital for CFA members, particularly volunteers in regional Victoria, and provide the majority of our members training within two hours of their fire station.”
