The MFB Annual Report is a snapshot of MFB’s achievements and performance over the past year. For the first time, this Annual Report incorporates all content online including a video and photo gallery.

Tabled in Victorian Parliament on Thursday 16 September, the report has been released to all internal and external stakeholders and is available for public reference.

MFB Chief Executive Officer / Chief Officer, Graham Fountain said: "Although the report cannot fully encapsulate the sheer number of achievements and community activities MFB staff participate in, both on and off the job, the many stories included are fine examples of the quality and dedication of our people; this is something I am extremely proud of."

Some of the key achievements throughout the 2009/10 year include:

  • Improvements in the way MFB work with Emergency Services colleagues from both a preparedness perspective (participating in regular drills), and for live emergencies (March 2010 wind storms).
  • Adapting and making improvements to MFB summer bushfire preparedness and training in accordance with the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission Interim Report.
  • For the first time in 50 years MFB’s highest honour, the Valour Medal, was awarded to three firefighters who saved the life of a colleague.

This year a minimal number of Annual Reports have been printed, so to supplement this, an Annual Report website has been created with links to MFB social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube). Click here to view.

"Thank you for your continued support throughout 2009/10. Our organisation is poised to deliver new initiatives over the coming year, which we believe will further improve our capacity to protect the Melbourne community," said CEO / Chief Officer Graham Fountain.
