Backup is critical for fire fighters
Watch this video from the UK, which shows why backup is critical for fire fighters to keep people and property safe.
This is a key reason why Victoria's fire services need to be reformed. In many urban areas in Melbourne's outer metro melt, backup is not guaranteed and just not reliable - simply because the fire services system has not changed significantly in 60 years, and hasn't kept up with urban growth.
Victoria shouldn't have to wait any longer. Help us call for fire services reform now.
