Emer­gency Ser­vices Min­is­ter James Mer­lino an­nounced the re­cip­i­ents.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all vol­un­teers across Vic­to­ria who se­cured funding for valu­able new equip­ment that will help them get on with the job of keep­ing com­mu­ni­ties safe,” he said.

“Our vol­un­teers put in huge hours away from their friends and fam­i­lies to res­cue peo­ple in rips, fires, floods and storms – they de­serve noth­ing less than the best equip­ment.”

Grants are for spe­cific op­er­a­tional equip­ment, train­ing and de­vel­op­ment, fa­cil­ity im­prove­ment, com­mu­nity en­gage­ment and ed­u­ca­tion.
