Place-Based Purchasing Trial for Primary Producer Brigades now open in Blackall/Tambo Regional Council
A grant process is now available to Primary Producer Brigades within the Blackall Tambo Regional Council Area (refer list below) allowing them to complete a simple application form to apply for funds to access locally sourced equipmentand services that are not supplied on the RFS free stores list. These requests for locally supplied equipment and services will be presented to a committee consisting of a Superintendent Rural Fire Servies (RFS); Area Director, Barcaldine and Emerald, RFS, two representatives from eligible PPBs and two Council representatives.
This will allow brigades to access extra community defence equipment and services, withour the rigour of each bridgade having and individual bank account and treasurer. A secondary benefit is that the money will be spent at local businesses. The RFBAQ instigated this initative in 2014 and have tested the community need with the 2016 QFES/RFBAQ PPB Community Defence Grants Programme and the 2017 RFBAQ PPB Roadshow.
To have QFES adopt adn trial this scheme in Western Queensland shows the renewed support from RFS for he 50% of Rural Fire Brigades who are classified as PPB's.
