Veteran Support is where we invite Individuals and Corporations to join with the First Responder Community (FRC) to assist first responder veterans in their later years or to overcome the various injuries they suffer as result of their service.
Who can participate
A First Responder veteran is a person who has had a minimum one year active service or volunteer experience in Law enforcement, Firefighting, Paramedics, Rescue, Military and Frontline logistics.
First Responder veterans receive a variety of assistance once they have left their respective services, however many receive very little as many departments will refuse medical or equipment provisions for retirees forcing the retirees to get costly legal assistance to prove or enforce entitlements.
Veterans are also subject to illnesses directly related to their frontline service such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), lung and skin diseases from chemical toxins and trauma injuries from physical conflict. The FRC endeavours to provide medical equipment or facilities to assist the wellbeing of the veterans.
The FRC Does for Veterans
The First Responder Community respects all members and will assist them in the following ways:
- Make available aged care and rehabilitation facilities.
- Assist in the provision of mobility and rehabilitation equipment.
- Provide work opportunities
The FRC Does Not
The First Responder Community is not a representative association and does not cater with any legal, medical, financial, religious or political support services other than what is stated above (1) (2) & (3). The sole role of the FRC is to fund raise for equipment and accommodation for the use of First Responders.
