Australia has a long and proud tradition of reservists for the Australian Defense Forces. Highly trained individuals who can be called on by the Australian Government in times of need. These brave individuals when required willingly put their life in jeopardy  and sadly some loose their life and rightly recognized as national heroes.

Reserves, have as stated in reserve defence jobs "Perks of the Job" reserves.(defencejobs.gov.au/pay-and-benefits)

Tax-free daily pay and allowances, Free food and accommodation and Free medical and dental care. No Australian would argue that these "Perks of the Job" are not fair

Australia also has a proud tradition of highly skilled volunteer fire fighters. These brave Women and Men who risk their lives and too often lose their lives while battling fires to save townships and our national heritage.

Any fair minded person can see a clear correlation between reserve defence personnel and voluntary firefighters.  We can also see a dramatic difference in how they are treated.

We fair minded Australians Petition the Australian Government to recognize the need to elevate voluntary firefighters to the status of Reservist firefighters with conditions of Tax-free daily pay and allowances and free medical care.
