This summer Australia faced one of the most catastrophic fire seasons in our nation’s history, and NSW bore a large brunt of it.
The PSA knows the invaluable service the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) provides in supporting NSW communities in times of need.
Your union has been on the front foot during this fire season, calling out the government for their catastrophic funding decisions and their handling of the crisis.
We need your stories
The PSA will be writing a submission to the NSW Independent Bushfire Inquiry as well as the Royal Commission into the Black Summer Bushfires and we need to hear from you: your stories from the fire grounds; your expert advice on exactly what resources are required to manage the potential severity of future fire and other emergency seasons.
If you can spare just seven minutes of your time to fill in our simple survey, your input will greatly strengthen your union’s submissions to these important inquiries.
This survey is confidential and no individual respondent will be identified. We will be using the submissions to help us lobby for greater resources and support for our members working in emergency services and to hold this government to account for funding shortcomings.
