In addition there were 2 standard RFBAQ Grants approved.
Update on the Heavy Attack for Birdsville RFB and Burketown RFB – the RFBAQ has now raised over 30% of the money needed to fully fund these 2 trucks. A huge thanks to the Murphy Foundation and Youi Insurance for your most generous donations this week and to Brisbane Isuzu for a hefty discount on the cab chassis.
Update on the 6x RFBAQ Landcruiser light attacks that are being made for brigades without trucks – the 1st cab chassis have come back from the painters and is under construction. The initial vehicle is targeted to come off the production line in early April. This will see these vehicles at both Volunteer Summits and out and about in brigade land for feedback and testing from May until September.
100 x SatSleeves allocated. All units have now been allocated - we thank everyone who applied, and trust that the issued units will be of assistance. We have already received a number of positive comments regarding the SatSleeves and their usefulness on the fire ground. This is now something that RFSQ will supply to brigades with the monthly connection fees and call costs covered by RFSQ. If your brigade would like to apply then please fill in this RFSQ Grant form by Friday 13th March.
