Volunteer firefighters from across Moyne had an audience with new CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan last week.
Mr Heffernan, who took over the top role late last year, toured the south-west of the state to speak to the rank and file.
CFA members from across the district converged on Koroit to sit in on a session to hear from Mr Heffernan.
The CFA leader said he was thrilled to hear from members, who provided him with feedback on a number of important issues.
These included the importance of roadside vegetation management, safety, and the role of private farm fire units in rural areas.
"Meeting CFA volunteers has been a top priority of mine since starting in my role," Mr Heffernan said.
