To cut costs, the Federal Government is proposing to shut down Aviation Rescue Fire Fighting Services at Coffs Harbour, Gladstone, Broome, Newman and Ayers Rock, and further limit expansion of these services.
Firefighters have launched the ‘3 Minutes to Live’ campaign calling on the Federal Government to put passenger safety and regional communities first by ruling out station closures and allowing further expansion.
Aviation firefighters are highly trained and specially skilled in rapid intervention techniques necessary to protect air travellers and save lives during aircraft crashes and fires.
We respond to more than 6700 aircraft and airport emergencies at 26 of Australia’s busiest airports each year.
Save the aviation firefighting services that save you. Write a message to the Transport Minister and affected regional MPs.
