Philip Donato, the Hon. Phillip Donato, Member for Orange, has distributed a petition throughout the emergency services which has been enthusiastically received.
The petition will bring to the attention of the Legislative Assembly of NSW Parliament the urgent need to protect our emergency services by introducing an enforceable 40 km/h speed limit for the vicinities of emergency service personnel operating on or near roadways.
The petition is fully supported by the Volunteer Fire Fighters Association, The Rural Fire Service Association, NSW Fire Brigade Employees’ Union and the Police Association of NSW.
Police, Fire and RFS officers have already started signing.
Philip Donato has invited the entire community to support the men and women of the emergency services by signing the petition. When the requisite 10,000 signatures has been obtained, Mr Donato will table it in parliament and will vigorously debate the issue.

The VFFA thanks you so much for helping us with this incredibly important campaign, which is being supported in every sense by the Hon. Phillip Donato, Member for Orange.
Many Different Views
The VFFA acknowledges that there are many different views surrounding the implementation and policing of a 40 km/h speed limit for the vicinities of emergency service personnel.
These views need to be vigorously debated, this is why we are supporting the campaign in principle and we are confident that Mr Donato will deliver.
