A program of reforms is underway which sets out the government’s vision for Victoria’s fire services – a modern, integrated and sustainable system that responds to the evolving needs of communities.

As part of these reforms, the Fire District Review Panel (the Panel) has been established to undertake reviews of the Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) fire district boundaries at least once every four years. The current review is to be completed and recommendations made to the Minister for Emergency Services by 30 June 2024.
