Petition to reinstate $13m slashed from Qld Rural Fire brigade budget

Letter to the Editor

I am writing to you seeking  your support for the volunteers of the Queensland Rural Fire Brigades.

The State Government has slashed 13 million dollars from the Rural Fire budget for this financial year.

More than 11,000 Queensland rural fire fighter volunteers have rejected the takeover of the RFS by urban brigades. They are asking for the $13m taken out of their budget to be returned.

I have lodged an e-petition to the Parliament requesting the Government increase support for our Rural Fire volunteers by providing more equipment and resources to our Rural brigades, to counter the predicted increase in bushfires.

If you could log onto the Parliamentary e-petition web site

and add your name to the petition, it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, Please forward this message to all your friends and relatives, the safety of our volunteers and rural communities depend on the Government getting our message

Thank you.

Terry Gordon. Secretary Gordonbrook Rural Fire Brigade.

The Qld ALP state government in spite of the nonsense spruiked by the Premier on every recent TV bulletin about ‘unprecedented’ bushfires and how good is the RFS, does not like the RFS as witnessed by the urban brigades’ takeover. It has stalled because Annastacia is set to sack more than 11,000 RFS volunteers for refusing to apply for a working with children blue card. She does not have the lawful authority, according to the best legal advice, to enforce anything upon volunteers. There are no contractual agreements between the ‘State Government’ and individual volunteers.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Hi Frank the RFS is manned by 30,000 volunteers in Queensland who don’t receive a cent. Their average age is over 50.
    Most are rural dwellers, farmers or farm workers who leave their jobs to put out fires. They have never needed any urban bosses or brigades to tell them how to put out a fire. They just do it. There are no contractual arrangements with the QFES or anybody else implied or written. Volunteers can choose to attend a fire or they can stay at home working to stay alive.The QFES has no authority over volunteers.Editor


  2. Is it true that our Rural Fire Service is manned to a large degree by unemployed ” volunteers ” that do not have to seek other work …..?? And if so , are they obliged/contracted to attend fires ???


  3. I would love to sign but as I live in NSW, I am not eligible.
    All the best …Annie


  4. They did the same thing in Victoria where the unionised urban brigades took control of the bush brigades
