All 103 RFBAQ/Rexel Safety Equipment Grants approved

Tuesday, 17 May 2016

The RFBAQ General Meeting was held in Townsville over the weekend and approved all 103 brigade applications received of the 100 RFBAQ/Rexel Safety Equipment Grants, with the additional 3 packs being purchased by the Association.

It was heartening to see the number of Primary Producer Brigades (PPBs) applying for grants, and working to improve the level of support that they can supply to their communities.

In recognition of this, and cognisant that the truck brigades have received a significant boost from the now successful RFBAQ lobbying for fuel and maintenance, the RFBAQ are looking to tailor a separate grant package specifically designed to support Primary Producer Brigades (both broad acre and long grass brigades) and their vastly differing community defence needs.

When the RFBAQ Brigade Community Defence Grant (Primary Producer Brigades) offering is finalised, PPB’s will be notified of the process and simplified grant application form.

The RFBAQ/Rexel Safety Equipment Grant packs will start to be posted out next week.

The RFBAQ would again like to thank Rexel Holdings Australia for making this equipment available to brigades in Queensland and for their consideration as part of their Enforceable Undertaking actions. This support to Queensland’s Rural Fire Brigades equipment will help towards improving safety and their working conditions at incidents. The donation made by Rexel Holdings Australia will continue to benefit these everyday heroes.
