Successful VESEP Grants Announced

The Acting Minister for Police and Emergency Services the Hon Danny Pearson MP has announced the outcomes for Volunteer Emergency Service Equipment Program (VESEP) for 2020/21.

VFBV congratulates the 137 CFA Brigades and Groups who were successful in their VESEP applications for grants across all categories in all districts across the State.

The annual grants program was designed by volunteers for volunteers and rewards brigades and groups for the countless hours they contribute to their keeping their communities safe.

Under the annual grants program volunteer emergency service groups are given the opportunity to apply for grants of up to $100,000 to purchase equipment including Tankers, Field Command Vehicles, Rehabilitation Units and for minor improvements to stations including refurbishments and amenities, such as kitchens and turnout rooms.

Other operational equipment that can be funded includes chainsaws, generators, quick fill pumps and portable lighting. Video Conferencing equipment, laptops and security systems were also popular items. 

In addition to the Brigade and Group grants, 23 Road Crash Rescue Brigades will benefit with ancillary equipment and software provided through the Statewide Initiatives funding allocation.

It is also a good time for Brigade and Group Management Teams to start considering if there is a project they may wish to apply for a VESEP grant in the future, the VFBV VESEP Application Help pack provides some helpful tips and information that you can use to start thinking and preparing for future applications.
