THIS IS WHAT WE DID THIS YEAR WE FIREFIGHTERS HELPING FIREFIGHTERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
"Our little girl was home from school recovering after an operation. When our Rep made contact he asked what our girl liked, he wanted to help her. Wow, when they showed up with the best selection of colouring in books, pens and pencils, it really brightened her spirit. The Welfare Society personalised their support and brought our little girl's smile back. Thank you for all your hard work."

We Spent $130,000 Supporting You.
This year we spent more directly supporting those in need while continuing to deliver on personal touches that help to connect us.
"Huge help when our house flooded. The assistance was, and still is amazing."
Healthcare 99 Paid Out Over $1,300,000 in Medical Costs
Our health plan has firefighters interest at heart - it allows our members to access medical treatment when they wanted. This support would unlikely be accessible in a similar manner through the already stretched public health system.
"I would like to thank you and the Welfare Society for your help and assistance whilst I was in hospital and upon my return home. It has been a bad year for me health wise, but it is reassuring to have the help and support of the welfare. I would highly recommend the joining of the Welfare Society and Healthcare 99 to everyone. It makes such a big difference to know people are there to support myself and my family. Once again thank you for all your hard work."

"I was off work with PTSD and in a real slump. Our rep came and visited. We had a chat, he brought a basket with some flowers, chocolates and a card. It was amazing and lifted me immensely. That card now sits on my kitchen windowsill and when ever I look at it, I know someone is their and cares about me."
