Liberal Nationals to give the voice back to volunteers as Daniel Andrews attempts to silence them.
Daniel Andrews continues his attempts to silence CFA Volunteers with his latest nasty cut of funding for FIRE WISE, an important communication tool for volunteers.
The 50 year old publication is used by the Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV), CFA Chief, EMV Commissioner Craig Lapsley and local volunteers to communicate messages on current issues including service delivery, volunteer awards and upcoming fire services events.
Daniel Andrews has hit a new low in his war against volunteers-trying to silence them by taking away a major part of their communication channel by cutting the funding for FIRE WISE.
A Matthew Guy Government will ensure the funding for FIRE WISE is reinstated and directed via the VFBV to ensure all fire fighters, including volunteers continue to have a voice on their fire services.
Quotes attributed to Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, Brad Battin MP:
It is clear Daniel Andrews will continue to silence and disrespect volunteers as he works to destroy the CFA.
Just this week FIRE WISE was reporting on the need for a Royal Commission into Victoria’s fire services, by coincidence Daniel Andrews announces he’s cut their funding- a new low even for Labor.
Only the Liberal Nationals will ensure all fire fighters including volunteers have the resources to have their voices heard.
