Our brave CFA Volunteers donate countless hours of their valuable time, not only fighting fires, but in endless Training, Education, Meetings & Drills just to be eligible to serve their Communities. Many are Farmers who are already struggling financially with ever increasing costs & effects of climate change.

Farmers make up the majority of CFA Volunteers. Farmers are often financially crippled & surviving on far less than Newstart. Farmers are being charged the MOST for the Fire Services Levy. Farmers who are CFA Volunteers are leaving their properties undefended to save others properties. Whilst they are off Volunteering, they earn zero income & fall further behind. Is this fair?

Premier Andrews, please support our selfless CFA Volunteers, who leave their own properties unattended to help others, by exempting them from paying the Fire Services Levy. It seems the very least that could be done to ease their financial burden and show gratitude for the countless hours they donate when they should be working their own properties & spending time with their own families.
