Remunerate our volunteer firefighters!
Acknowledge our volunteer firefighters with remuneration on Federal, state and local government levels.
By either, or, and a financial payment, Federal tax cuts, State benefit; e.g free registration, ambulance, school fees etc., Local government; rate cut, free tip fees etc.
Why is this important?
Volunteers fight fires for the benefit of all levels of Government fundamentally. Without volunteers the country, states and municipalities burn equally without prejudice; building, human, beast and flora.
My daughter cried yesterday when she saw the black sky and red sun over the Shoalhaven. At 16 she said "mum, is this what our future is going to look like?"
Then I thought about the volunteers fighting!
Then I thought about the Governments!
Then I started this campaign.
Please volunteer your voice, for volunteers to have a voice and acknowledgement from Governments, to help shift the balance of power for today into the future.
