Fiskville Health Screening Registration
In 1971, the CFA opened its Fiskville Training College for firefighters from all parts of the state. There are now serious questions around safety and management practices at Fiskville. It is important that anyone who underwent fire training at that facility registers for Health Screening by downloading a form and submitting it as soon as possible.
If you have particular concerns please contact AWU Victorian Safety Director Percy Pillai on 03 8327 0888.
