This event will see 14 Victorian emergency service agencies come together along with sector supporters as we celebrate and acknowledge Victoria’s emergency service workers. Victoria depends on the dedication of its 125,000 emergency service workers, 100,000 of whom are volunteers. These are people who care deeply and contribute greatly to our community.
Each day they respond to around 7,000 emergency ‘000’ calls. It’s a high-risk occupation and not only do emergency service workers risk physical injury to help us, but they also risk mental injury. Every year thousands of emergency service workers develop mental injury as result of being regularly exposed to distressing situations.
The ESF Better Together Luncheon is an opportunity to hear stories of lived experience and for us to show how much we appreciate what they do for our community.
