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

Round 2 (2023-24)

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 have now closed.
