Support for our volunteer fire brigades
Published on 30 March 2022
Fire brigades across the Mornington Peninsula will soon be able to apply for funding from the Shire for projects that support our volunteers in their vital work.
Council has voted to set up a working group to disperse the $300,000 it received from the sale of land to the Country Fire Authority (CFA) in 2018.
The working group will have a representative from both the Westernport and Peninsula CFA groups, a Shire representative and an independent member. Once established, the group will invite all local fire brigades to submit funding applications for consideration.
The working group will consider the applications and oversee the successful grants, ensuring those projects chosen provide the best possible benefit to the Mornington Peninsula’s CFA brigades.
