Since the beginning of CFS, and well before, the farm firefighting community has provided a quick response to the early stages of a fire, the active firefighting during blazes, and the continued monitoring after emergency services have handed properties back to their owners.
Regional Capability Community Fund
The Regional Capability Community Fund (RCCF) has been established to improve community safety and capability to respond to fire emergencies. The RCCF will reimburse between $200 to $3,000 (GST inclusive) to farmers and farming businesses to purchase equipment to support the safe use of Farm Fire Units (FFU).
Applications for Round 2 (2023-24) have now closed.
