In addition to the assistance packages that we always make available to our customers during emergencies, we wanted to also ensure that Australia’s volunteer firefighters are supported as well.
This new assistance package means that we will cover the cost of volunteer firefighter’s mobile phone bills over the period of December and January. We want to do this to show our thanks to firefighters for their efforts in helping keep communities safe.
Firefighter volunteers should contact Telstra on 13 22 03 when convenient to register for the free calls over December and January.
We hope this will ease some of the burden, particularly as many of these firefighters are defending their own communities.
Mod: Deal title is tagged [BF] which is a tag for all deals related to Bushfire Victims/Volunteers etc. You may choose to deprioritise this tag by using the new front page. Please click 'new' on the OzBargain home page, then 'personalise', then add bf in 'add a title tag', drag the slider to less, then save preference. You may also choose to add other tags to see more/less of those deals (eg your state, other states) or see more/less from particular stores.
For those affected or involved, see the Bushfire Relief event page. You can also use the new front page to prioritise the [BF] tag.
