Our Purpose

Protecting those who protect us

ESF is a not for profit organisation which brings together Victoria’s emergency management agencies to protect the mental health and wellbeing of those who protect us.

Better together. That’s what we aim to be.

Tony’s Trek is a solo walk of 1,440km over 50 days, undertaken by Tony Pearce, Chair of ESF and Victoria’s Inspector-General for Emergency Management. Tony’s Trek aims to raise much needed awareness of the terrible mental health toll that emergency service work can have on Victoria’s emergency workers.

ESF is thrilled to have received funding from the Victorian Government to take our popular Mental Health Matters program to brigades, units, clubs and groups again in 2022. This free program is open to all Victorian volunteer emergency service/ management volunteers.

ESF issues a regular IMPACT eNews to keep our stakeholders informed about initiatives we are leading or involved with.
