CFA is regularly updating its response to coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures in place to ensure your health and safety. These measures have impacted in some way on all planned activities within the organisation.
Cancelled or postponed events include the State Champs and the AFL Emergency Services and Country Round matches. An update on specific activities and information is listed below.
Coles Gift Cards – extended usage deadline
We are aware that a number of brigades have not yet spent the $500 Coles Gift Card which were distributed in December. We know that brigades are either just coming out of the Fire Danger Period or are still in it and they are only just starting to consider how they might use their $500 now that they have the opportunity to do so.
Unfortunately, a few circumstances have arisen which have made it challenging for brigades to meet the 31 May deadline to spend the money:
- The ban put on brigade social gatherings due to COVID-19 precautions
- The non-perishable items they may want to buy may not be available due to panic buying
Finance has now agreed to extend the deadline to 31 March 2021.
