The Weatherill Government with the support of the Liberals turned its back on CFS volunteers opting to provide full presumptive legislation to MFS paid and retained fire fighters whilst setting barriers for CFS volunteers to ensure that only CFS volunteers who “fit” the Government’s budget qualify. The Liberals had supported CFS volunteers and indeed provided encouragement throughout the CFSVA campaign, yet at the last minute, and without notice backed the Government’s Amended Bill. Under these amendments only CFS Volunteers who attend 35 "fires" per year for 5 years equalling 175 responses will qualify which will effectively exclude 13,000 CFS Volunteers.
WHAT A GREAT THANK YOU TO CFS VOLUNTEERS ENTERING A NEW FIRE SEASON!
THE WEATHERILL GOVERNMENT DID NOT STAND UP FOR YOU!
THE LIBERAL PARTY TURNED IT BACK ON YOU!
YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA IS FAR TOO VALUABLE
JUST AS VALUABLE AS YOUR VOTE AT THE MARCH STATE ELECTION
