Thank you to all who joined us in 2020 for Australia's first Thank a First Responder Day.  We wanted to create a day of thanks and appreciation for the entire first responder community to recognise the work they do in protecting, defending and caring for us each and every day.  Save the Date for 9th June 2021.

Our First Responders have always supported our communities but in 2020, it has become apparent just how much these people do to protect and care for us. With bushfires followed by cyclones, floods, hailstorms and COVID-19 on top of the everyday business of house fires, car crashes and crime, 2020 has highlighted the incredible work of our first responders.

This year we wanted a chance to say thank you.

On 2nd June 2020, join us for Thank a First Responder Day and say thank you to those who protect, defend and care for our community every single day.
