Meeting of UFU members with health problems caused by recent fires

Tuesday 22 October 2019: 10.00AM – 2.00PM. The UFU is calling a meeting of members who have health problems that have been caused by their attendance at recent major fires, in particular, the West Footscray/Tottenham, Campbellfield, Bradbury and Coolaroo fires.



Firefighters fight fires not people

Members are informed that it has been a long held policy of the United Firefighters Union of Australia that firefighters will not be deployed or participate in removing protesters.


UFU member support for Walking Off The War Within

Late last year, UFU member and CFA Leading Firefighter Shayne Egan undertook to run a marathon in each state and territory of Australia for the organisation. Donning a Walking Off The War Within t-shirt for each marathon, Shayne has continued the conversation to raise awareness about mental health, in particular PTSI, and the legacy left by late UFU member and CFA QFF Nathan Shanahan.



UFU and Salvos partner for World Homeless Day

Professional firefighters cooking and serving from Salvos’ Bourke St Kitchen … We need members to attend to assist us in this important community initiative!
