Dave is a professional firefighter with the CFA. He cares about protecting the community, but Premier Napthine's cuts affect what support he receives.
Our Fire Service in Crisis
The Napthine Government has taken significant regressive action in attacking firefighters and the community’s protection, including:
- 66 million dollar budget cuts
- Failure to recruit and train appropriate numbers of fire fighters
- Attacking firefighters' conditions of employment
- Refusing to acknowledge the link between firefighting and certain types of cancer
