The investment enables volunteer emergency services agencies to carry out urgent maintenance, repairs and upgrades to extend the life and improve safety of their existing facility and asset portfolios, and provide support to Victorian businesses and workers affected by the downturn in the Victorian economy caused by the pandemic.

Member for Western Victoria Gayle Tierney said, “These vital projects will improve the condition of critical infrastructure and ensure that emergency services in
Western Victoria will be able to continue their incredible work keeping the community safe.”

“The Emergency Services Refurbishment Fund will extend the life of existing facilities and resources, while developing job opportunities within the local community.” Ms Tierney said.
