Emergency Services Volunteer Fuel Card

The Emergency Services Volunteer Fuel Card Scheme (the Scheme) is a gift, made possible by the State Government of Western Australia, to support the important work of metropolitan and regional emergency service volunteers and acknowledge their contribution to the WA community.

Under this Scheme, brigades, groups and units (BGUs) in the following services will be provided, upon application, with a $2,000 fuel card annually for the next four years, commencing in 2015/16:

  • Bush Fire Service
  • Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service
  • Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services
  • State Emergency Service
  • Volunteer Marine Rescue Services
  • St John Ambulance

Funding for the fuel cards in regional WA is supported by the Royalties for Regions program.

Applications for the 2015/16 fuel card are now closed.

Applications for the 2015/16 volunteer fuel card are now closed. The application period closed on Sunday 10 January 2016. Late applications cannot be accepted due to data validation purposes.

If you have any queries regarding an application already submitted please call the DFES’ Fuel Card Administrator on 9395 9550.

When will your BGU receive the fuel card?

Distribution of Emergency Services Volunteer Fuel Card Information Packs containing the Fuel Cards will commence shortly. Your BGU can expect to receive these packs in mid-March.

How can the fuel card be used?

The volunteer officer-in-charge will be responsible for distributing the fuel card amongst actively contributing registered volunteers within the BGU.

The fuel card is restricted to fuel purchases only and can be used for private or recreational use. The fuel card must not be used to purchase fuel for an operational vehicle or vessel.
