About Thank a First Responder Day

As we continue to face another devastating bushfire season, first responders are tasked with keeping our communities safe. Paid and volunteer firefighters, alongside their first responder colleagues are exhausted and have a long few months ahead. 

While much work has been done to prepare for this fire season, there is still a lot to do. This is where Fortem Australia steps in. We lead Australia in delivering support to first responders and their families, nurturing resilience to boost mental health and wellbeing.
