Hon Colin De Grussa
EMERGENCY SERVICES VOLUNTEER FUEL CARD
Hon COLIN de GRUSSA
to the minister representing Minister for Emergency Services:
We are now almost halfway through the 2017–18 financial year, well into the fire season, and applications for the emergency service volunteer fuel card scheme are still not open.
When will eligible brigades, groups and units have the opportunity to re-apply for the reduced value cards?
(2) What is the expected processing time for applications?
When will officers in charge of brigades, groups and units have these funds to disburse to volunteer members?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises the following.
Applications are anticipated to open during December via the online application form on the DFES website.
The application period will be open for one month to allow sufficient time for the officers in charge to apply. Processing of the applications will take approximately three weeks from the close of the application period.
(3) It will be in February 2018.
