Emergency Services Foundation

The Emergency Services Foundation was established following the Ash Wednesday bushfires in 1983. It operates as a trust to provide immediate support for those who suffer hardship as a result of the death of a family member or injuries sustained in the line of duty.

The Foundation also provides educational scholarships to members of the industry and conducts support activities such as the annual Emergency Management Conference to increase the understanding of the key issues that challenge emergency services personnel.
