22nd February 2020 – Dave Connor announces the launch of the RED Friday program to support Australian first responders.
Dave Connor is a retired District Fire Chief with a consulting practice focusing on peer support team building and is quite well known and respected in North America. He is the RED Friday programs director.
“The world is not such a large place and the VFFA is deeply moved when our international friends share a common interest in the health and welfare of our First Responders.”Mick Holton, President, Volunteer Fire Fighters Association Australia
$5 from each cap sale will be given directly to an Australian Firefighter Association, to fund mental wellness programs for Australian firefighters.
Sustained actions such as Australia’s wildfires dramatically increase the frequency and intensity of psychiatric injury, and it will take months or years of support to return to relative normalcy.
