Calling All Volunteers! Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Grants Open Now
State Member for Evelyn Christine Fyffe is encouraging Yarra Ranges emergency service organisations to apply for the 2015-16 round of Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment grants.
“The Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program is an ongoing initiative that provides local emergency services, volunteer groups access to grants for operational equipment, vehicles, trucks, tankers, watercraft, trailers and minor facility improvements,” Mrs Fyffe said.
Not for profit organisations are eligible for this funding.
“Further information about how to apply can be found on the Grants Victoria webpage which lists all government grant rounds which are currently open.
“Our emergency service volunteers do a great job protecting us, so it is important we return the favour and provide the equipment to help them do the jobs.
