For over 20 years, the NSW Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA) has been providing equipment, training and assistance for the women and men of the NSW Rural Fire Service in their vital role of keeping people and property safe from bushfires and other natural disasters.
Their diligence and hard work in supporting and protecting the community often puts them in harm’s way, and can impact their own lives.
The generous donations we receive from our supporters are invaluable and deeply appreciated, helping us to help them do their important work, and be there for them when they need support.
Raffle proceeds provide funds for a year-round grant scheme that helps many Brigades improve the level of their amenities, training and member welfare. Some items that are popular to apply for include portable fridges that can be mounted on tankers, GPS navigation units and electric hose reels to make winding up hoses that much quicker and less strenuous.
Your raffle support assists the RFSA in providing the sponsorship of training and learning events, the provision of scholarships for relevant educational courses, financial assistance for counselling, chaplaincy and family services, and long-term sustainable benefits for NSW RFS members.
Importantly, your support also allows the RFSA to continue providing the most effective means of representing and communicating the views of volunteer firefighters to Governments and industry bodies.
