ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR NEW STATIONS AND STATION IMPROVEMENTS
At the Associations meeting with Rural Operations Management in November 2010, the RFBAQ requested that additional funds be allocated to the construction of new stations and repairs to existing stations that had failed WPH&S Audits. An additional $500,000 was allocated for these buildings in January and was fully allocated by the beginning of February, highlighting the massive need for funding across the State. The RFBAQ again drew attention to these shortfalls at the RE&RM Meeting on the 19th February at Whyte Island.
We are pleased to announce that an additional $1.5million has now been allocated to this area.
Please contact your area office to access this additional funding as it too will disappear quickly.
The full day Volunteer Forum held Saturday showcased speakers who are considered leaders in the support of Volunteer fire-fighters in Australia and their presentations certainly personified that.
