Frankston - the Suburb
Frankston is a blend of commercial, light industrial and residential on the urban / rural interface. It is an outer south- eastern suburb of Melbourne and is located on the eastern shores of Port Philip Bay.  In Frankston there are two large shopping centres, a major hospital, several schools and approximately 65,000 people.
The CFA
The Frankston fire brigade is one of 1220 brigades that together form the Country Fire Authority (CFA).  The CFA is responsible for all parts of the state of Victoria except for public land (eg National Parks etc. which is the responsibility of the DSE), and inner metropolitan Melbourne (which is protected by the MFB).
