THE SAFETY OF AUSTRALIA’S AIR TRAVELLERS IS AT RISK.
Every day across Australia, air travellers are protected by aviation firefighters, dedicated to looking after your safety.
Aviation fuel fires burn hot and fast and when a plane crashes, firefighters have just 3 minutes to reach the plane to provide passengers with the best chance of survival.
That’s why aviation firefighting requires special training and equipment, and firefighters must be stationed at airports close to runways so that they can reach a crashed plane in time.
However, the Federal Government is cutting the number of aviation firefighters protecting Australia’s airports and that means fewer firefighters to save your life when you need them most.
In response, we’ve launched the ‘3 Minutes to Live – Keep Our Skies Safe’ campaign to protect you and our community
At this Federal Election, we need your help to call on all political parties to provide the resources aviation firefighters need to keep you safe in the skies.
