SUREWiSE are pleased to support the upcoming CFS Foundation’s ‘Shout Out’ initiative to be held on Friday 25/05/2018. And to help raise even more funds, SUREWiSE will match our team’s donations, dollar for dollar.
What is the “Shout Out” initiative?
In South Australia, we are fortunate enough to have approximately 13,500 volunteers who respond to almost 20,000 incidents annually. While protecting the community, CFS volunteer firefighters are often victims themselves – suffering injuries, losing property to fire, and in some cases, their lives.
The CFS Foundation provides vital and immediate financial assistance for the CFS volunteer firefighters and their families, should they come to harm in the line of service.
This year, to raise both awareness and funds for the CFS Foundation, there will be a state-wide initiative named ‘SHOUT OUT’, that will thank the South Australian CFS volunteer firefighters for all their dedication and service to our community, over the 2017/2018 Fire Danger Season.
Donate a gold coin to the CFS Foundation and wear a YELLOW item of clothing, just like the volunteers do! Whether its fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, we can hear you giving a big SHOUT OUT to our CFS volunteer firefighters!
Thank you for considering taking part in the ‘CFS volunteer SHOUT OUT’ initiative, to support those who volunteer for you.
