Daniel Andrews forces CFA volunteers to remain silent
Daniel Andrews has lost control of the CFA.
For over 4 years Daniel Andrews has disrespected volunteers by cutting funding to Fire Wise, failed to bring in presumptive legislation and attempted to tear apart the CFA.
Today Daniel Andrews has silenced volunteers at Nar Nar Goon CFA, taking away their voice and ability to campaign for a new station and better outcomes in their community.
Too often our CFA volunteers are receiving increased pressures from the Andrews Labor Government to stay silent or be threatened with a reduction in training or failure to receive facility upgrades.
Today’s actions by Daniel Andrews is one of a Premier who has lost control and respect of our fire services.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, Brad Battin:
“Daniel Andrews has lost control, as Premier he has delivered everything for the United Firefighters Union and Peter Marshall but has only disrespected and silenced volunteers.
The actions shown today by Daniel Andrews to silence volunteers, preventing them from campaigning for better outcomes for their community is the sign of a weak Premier.”
