Energex partnership brings equipment to Qld fire brigades
Energex has renewed its partnership with Queensland Rural Fire Service through a $75,000 sponsorship of vital emergency equipment.
“Energex has sponsored the Queensland Rural Fire Service for the past two years, providing vital equipment that is used by rural firefighters throughout South East Queensland,” said Energex CEO Terry Effeney.
“Energex crews and rural firefighters work side by side with other response organisations during emergencies, and this sponsorship will help ensure that partnership continues.”
Effeney also presented the Beerwah Rural Fire Service volunteers with an additional $5000 worth of equipment from Energex, including a portable refrigerator, a generator and two new chainsaws.
Queensland Fire and Rescue Service Commissioner Lee Johnson said the equipment handovers were designed to provide Rural Fire Service volunteers with essential resources to increase their operational and support capacity.

“These grants have benefited many brigades in the last few years by giving them the opportunity to apply for a range of approved items which will assist them to undertake mitigation, response and education activities within their communities,” he said.
