Maffra SC Youth Crew

MSC CFA Youth Crew


From the initialisation of the Victorian Youth Development Program in 1997 until it was no longer offered by Maffra Secondary College in 2011, the Maffra Fire Brigade actively supported the Maffra Secondary College’s CFA Youth Crew in a number of ways.  Some of these were:

  • Supplying vehicles for training
  • Supplying equipment necessary for training
  • Supplying the necessary members to support the youth crew with training and camps.

The Maffra Fire Brigade was involved in the program since its initialisation. The brigade itself has gained significant benefits from the program, with the influx of new younger members into the brigade.  Taught by Dave Montague, Captain of Valencia Creek Rural Fire Brigade and a Group officer of the Macalister Group, the youth crew thrived.

The youth crews over the past few years have also supported the brigade in a number of ways, including:

  • Supplying members to collect for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal
  • Helping with members for the Maffra Show
  • Providing members to help with the Maffra Mardi Gras parade
  • Assisting our Community Safety and Education team leader with the Brigade’s In Schools Program.
