About us

Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) is a modern fire and rescue service that meets the needs of twenty-first century Victoria.

The new organisation was established on 1 July 2020 as part of Victoria’s Fire Services Reforms.

The Fire Rescue Victoria Act 1958 is available on the Victorian Parliament’s Legislation and Bills website.

We serve and protect communities across Melbourne and Victoria’s major regional centres.

There are 85 FRV fire and rescue stations across the state. Our firefighters operate 47 fire stations in metropolitan Melbourne and 38 regional stations, most of which are co-located with CFA volunteer brigades.

We respond to fires, complex rescues, road crashes, emergency medical calls and hazardous chemical spills.

Our people are highly trained and ready to respond to emergencies across Victoria, Australia, and the world.

We work as one in the emergency services sector.

FRV proudly works with the Country Fire Authority (CFA), which is a community-based volunteer fire service.

Volunteers are vital to Victoria’s strong fire and rescue service capability. The safety of our community and our firefighters relies on us working together.
