Reforming the Emergency Services Funding System

On 16 November 2023, the NSW Government announced its commitment to reform the way the State’s emergency services are funded. Three key objectives of the reform are:

  2. Protect pensioners and vulnerable members of the community; and
  3. Ensure a revenue-neutral model that sustainably funds our emergency services agencies.

This consultation is open for submissions until 5pm Wednesday 22 May 2024.
