Call to action for submissions to parliamentary committee

4 July

Now’s your chance to help Victoria get the modern fire services system we need, to ensure the safety of people and properties in our growing state.

The government’s proposed fire services reforms are currently being examined by a parliamentary committee.

Anyone can make a submission to this review, and it’s vital that the committee gets as many submissions as possible from residents, families, and business owners who want a modern fire service, capable of ensuring their safety.

Your submission can be as short or as detailed as you like - but you need to get it in by the deadline of Friday 7 July.

Not sure where to begin? Here’s some inspiration:

  • The fire service boundaries have not significantly changed in 60 years - they have not kept pace with the enormous population growth in Victoria, particularly in outer-metro areas, like Dandenong, Springvale, and Craigieburn.
  • Reform is critical to give Victoria a modern fire services system, capable of ensuring the safety of all people and properties in our growing state.
