Volunteer Walkout Uniform - an overwhelming success
With an average of over 40 Volunteer Walkout Uniform applications arriving each day, the uniform that the RFBAQ is supplying to all Volunteers in the Queensland Rural Fire Service must be counted as an overwhelming success.
In the last month the RFBAQ have held information and product stands at the Roma Show, Agro Trend (Bundaberg), Exercise Capricornia (Emerald) and Farm Fest (Toowoomba). At these events, the Volunteer feedback has been that of both gratitude to the RFBAQ for supplying a uniform to all members; and disappointment that all Volunteers have not been recognised in this way for their contributions, sooner.
Since the uniform rollout at the Volunteer Summit in mid April (only a month and a half ago), over 1,560 applications for uniforms have been received from across the State. Due to the overwhelming response some sizes have been put on back order with an expected delivery date towards the end of June. (Note additional sizes have been added from XS to 6XL in shirts, including additional sizes in trousers)
When filling in your uniform application, it is important that you supply your Volunteer ID; this is so we ensure that the uniforms are distributed to Volunteers only.
Once you have your Volunteer ID, you can also use it to log onto the Volunteer Portal if you have not already done so.
All of the elected Representatives and the staff of the RFBAQ would again like to thankyou for the contribution that every Volunteer makes to their community to keep them fire aware and fire safe.
Note: if you have not yet received a copy of the Walkout Uniform application form, this is available from the Volunteer Tab / Volunteer News and Info of the RFBAQ website.
