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 (RCCF) 2022-23 (round one)
The focus of Round One of the Regional Capability Community Fund (RCCF) is Farm Fire Units. The RCCF will reimburse approved purchases or a portion of a purchase from $200 to $3,000 (GST exclusive). This will allow for the purchase of smaller items such as good quality first aid kits and UHF radios, but also a significant portion of a new pump, water tank etc.
Only one application per farmer or farming business will be considered.
How do I apply?
Applications for 2022-23 (round one) are now open and will be accepted through the iApply portal. Applications will close at 11.59pm (ACST) on Sunday 21 August 2022.
