The pdf distribution of the January 2023 VFFA magazine was delayed because of changes to our website design and hosting. The VFFA website may look similar, but the back end has undergone significant upgrades, and work continues.
The printed edition was distributed closer to the publication date, and the pdf was shared as much as possible (without our web-based distribution system).
The latest VFFA Magazine can be downloaded from this website. You might also like to update your membership details so that you can receive email updates, pdf or printed material.

The 15th World Firefighters Games will be held in Aalborg, Denmark in 2024.
5,000 firefighters and accompanying families are expected to visit Aalborg from September 7th to 14th 2024 to participate in more than 40 sports.
The World Firefighters Games has been held since 1990 when the first host city was Auckland, New Zealand. The last time the games visited Europe, was in 2008 in Liverpool.
Aalborg’s ambition is to create games where sport, community and unique experiences are in focus.
It would be fantastic see an increased Australian presence at these games.
