Pru McPherson started this petition to Australian Parliament

Small communities rely heavily on Auxiliary Firefighters to put their neck on the line to save people, properties and livelihoods. The majority of them have a separate form of income and Firefighting is done in their free available time, evenings and weekends, time that we spend with our safe loved ones. As this is classed as a secondary income, it is not eligible for the tax free threshold. Sometimes even putting these heroes into higher tax brackets and leaving debt come tax time. We ask that the situation gets reviewed as this is a life saving service we desperately need. While money is not the main driver for the people in this role, it seems like a small step towards showing our deep and heartfelt appreciation. We petition the Government in hopes of a better reward for our Fireys. They should be the last ones coughing up the tax dollar.
