Olga Wilson Fire Fighter Trust
Foreword by Commissioner - Olga Wilson Trust
It is with pleasure that I introduce this booklet outlining the benefits available to the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) community from the Olga Wilson Firefighters Trust. As an organisation, we are grateful for the generosity of Ms Olga Wilson who, in 1997, bequeathed funds in her Will to benefit firefighters and their families.
The benefits available through this Trust advocate our mission driven focus to support our people and our communities.
Since 1997, many full time, auxiliary and volunteer firefighters and their families have benefited from the Olga Wilson Firefighters Trust to help them through difficult times. Additionally, funds have been made available for research and development in areas where outcomes may improve the safety and wellbeing of firefighters. Support has also been provided to auxiliary stations and rural fire brigades.
The Trustees have agreed to publish this information to explain the purpose of the Trust and to outline the following:
- Financial assistance for firefighters and their families
- Research and Development Grant
- Professional Development
This booklet includes the criteria relating to each of these benefits and how to apply for a specific benefit.

PSBA & Q-Fleet extend Government Fleet Pricing to all Brigades through RFBAQ
For the first time, Rural Fire Brigades can access Standing Offer Arrangement QF 1211 for the provision of motor vehicles. Click here to view approval letter.
This comes as a result of a Rural Fire Brigade who wished to replace a command vehicle with their own brigade funds approaching the fire service in an attempt to access Gvt Fleet pricing.
The Rural Fire Brigade was informed by the fire service that as brigades are not part of the fire service then the SOA did not extend to the brigade.
The brigade then approached their local elected RFBAQ district representative who had the matter tabled at the RFBAQ General Meeting in September.
The RFBAQ then wrote to the CEO of PSBA, who working with Q-Fleet has been able to extend the SOA to brigades.
Through negotiation and understanding, many of the reporting requirements that are extended to Government Departments do not extend to brigades.
This is a clear case of co-operative working relationships between departments of the Queensland Government (such as Q-Fleet & PSBA) and the RFBAQ where a clear outcome for brigades can be effectively achieved through the use of common sense.
With the number of brigades and groups who purchase command and support vehicles and brigades who are purchasing fire-fighting appliances growing, this agreement will see more brigades able to afford to purchase vehicles for their communities defence.

*This SOA does not affect the agreement the RFBAQ has with Action Auto Group, Gympie, where Rural Fire Brigade Volunteers, Auxiliary Firefighters, SES Volunteers and RFBAQ staff can purchase any new vehicle at manufacturer invoice price less fleet discounts (excluding on road charges).
