Rapid Relief Team (RRT) joined forces with Fortem Australia – a non-profit supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all first responders! 

Greeted with lunch & coffee humbly provided by RRT, this was a day we acknowledged and thanked our valued first responders for all they do! Our RRT volunteers worked across five events in Gold Coast, Newcastle, Parramatta, Canberra and Melbourne.

“Our emergency service workers & other first responders do such an incredible job but continued to go above & beyond in the face of some incredible challenges the last few years."

Ken Earl, RRT Australia General Manager said.

“These events are just one way for us to show our gratitude to those who keep us safe.”

Ken said.

Thank you – two small but powerful words for Aussie’s frontline heroes!


Thank a First Responder Day is held on the second Wednesday in June each year. See more information about First Responder Day here.
