The Australian Professional Firefighters Foundation . The organisation is committed to becoming more actively involved with its local communities, in particular the
children's burns unit. It will provide financial assistance for the purchase of equipment
The Foundation is also committed to improving and maintaining the internal network and welfare of Professional Fire-fighters and their families.
The APFF is an organisation unique to Australia, which began in South Australia. It is an organisation belonging solely to the member fire fighters and their families. Its main purpose is fund
raising for charity, offering assistance to fire and road trauma victims, especially children, and those in immediate need. In addition, it also aims to become more actively involved in its local
communities, assist in the provision of fire prevention information to the community, and improve the internal network and welfare of the fire fighters themselves by peer to peer support.
The concept for this Foundation originated in Canada, where many years of successful campaigning has not only assisted the community in its various needs, but also raised the profile and morale
of the Firefighters in that country. This in turn, through the support of the people, has ensured their position within the community.
