The South Australian public is being asked to get behind an exciting new initiative supporting the continued development of the SA Volunteer Fire Fighters Museum complex at Naracoorte. Stage 1 of this development is a Memorial Wall to fallen fire fighters.

Rex Hall of Naracoorte has been instrumental in getting the SA Government to consider a $50,000 funding grant under the 'FundmyIdea's' Program for the establishment of this permanent memorial to those volunteer fire fighters who have lost their lives while fighting bushfires across South Australia.

Greg Nettleton CFS Chief Officer stated, 'The importance of such a Memorial Wall is essential in:

- Recording and retaining the CFS heritage
- Preserving memories and paying our respect to fallen colleagues
- Recognising the contribution of volunteer firefighters in serving and protecting South Australian communities.'

By visiting HERE you can view the proposed project and register your vote to help support this exciting Volunteer Fire Fighter's Museum project.
