Williamstown anger: Minister Guy gets a lesson in geography - Hobsons Bay Weekly
Following on from the firefighters’ rally at Parliament last week, the Greens’ Emergency Services spokesperson Colleen Hartland has met with Western Suburbs firefighters at her local Fire Station in Footscray.
Firefighters from Keilor, Deer Park, Altona, Newport and Footscray fire brigades attended the meeting.
“I’m here to find out what the $66 million budget cuts will mean for the Western Suburbs fire services and community safety” Colleen Hartland said this morning
“We need our firefighters well-resourced so they can do their job – protecting all Victorians.”
“Firefighters are fearful that cuts will affect staff numbers, compromising both firefighter and community safety.”
The Greens were also there to discuss their plans to introduce legislation to improve access to Workcover insurance and compensation provisions in the event that firefighters get sick on the job.
