Rebecca Loosemore started this petition to Australian federal government and

I believe in fair pay and benefits for the amazing heroes who are putting their own lives on hold to help save the lives of Australian people and the helpless animals who are caught up in our many bushfires that are burning throughout Australia at the moment. These brave men and women in the Volunteer Fire Brigade and the SES are risking their lives on a daily basis to save others, and I think it’s more than fair that they be paid more than just their normal wages, especially since they often only get paid leave for a short period of time, then unpaid leave, if their employer is in a position to pay them at all. Knowing there’s fair compensation for taking this on would also mean that more people would be willing and able to step up and help the cause, which is desperately needed. I think it’s disgraceful that the Firies and SES workers are expected to go backwards financially while they’re risking their lives to save others. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to send a strong message to the Australian Government that they need to step up and help these heroes, who are often working 12hrs, or longer, shifts to try and keep us all safe, by paying them fairly for their great service to the community. Please sign this petition and send it to all your friends and family. Thanks
