Ms Claire Higgins has advised me of her resignation as Chairperson of the Country Fire Authority (CFA).

I have accepted Ms Higgins' resignation and I thank her for her service and contribution to the CFA.

Ms Higgins has been the CFA Chairperson since October 2012 and has helped lead one of Victoria’s most important organisations.

I wish Ms Higgins well in her future endeavours.

The Deputy Chair John Peberdy will now serve as Acting Chair.
