Review of Fire Service Levy

The Volunteer Firefighters Association of NSW, the representative association for Volunteers of the NSW Rural Fire Service welcomes the NSW State Governments decision to review the funding model for Emergency Services.

The Volunteer Firefighters Association has been campaigning for a more equitable model for the collection of funding for the Emergency Services in NSW since our association first began eight years ago.

Reform is urgently needed to ensure that all residents contribute to the cost of these services rather than just those who insure in NSW & offshore.

We look forward to an opportunity of working with the NSW Government in undertaking this revue.
