Our purpose

Our fire stations are staffed by career firefighters – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

FRV is a new organisation that builds on the accomplishments Victoria’s fire and rescue services have delivered for the community for more than a century.

FRV’s purpose is to keep Victorian communities safe.

We achieve this through:

  • delivering expert fire and rescue services to the community we serve
  • driving systemic change to the built environment through reforms to building design, regulations and legislation, and
  • educating the community through fire prevention programs that improve community safety and build resilience.
