MILDURA Fire Brigade senior station officer Mick Sporton has thrown his support behind the CFA split in a submission to a public hearing on the Fire Services Bill. 

The Fire Services Bill Select Committee held its public hearing in Swan Hill on Wednesday to consider the proposed restructure of Victoria’s fire services. 

The restructure would see the CFA become a volunteer-only firefighting service while a new organisation, Fire Rescue Victoria, will be formed made up of paid firefighters.
