Cypress, Calif., Jan. 09. 2020 —To assist a reeling Australia in the face of its devastating bushfires, The Travel Corporation (TTC) has donated $100,000 to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS).
As the lead combat agency for bushfires in NSW and the largest volunteer fire service in the world, the Service directly benefits volunteer firefighters as they continue to battle the country’s devastating bushfires.
“On behalf of TTC, our hearts go out to the devastating loss of life, property, wildlife and nature from the bushfire tragedy. A huge appreciation goes out to the outstanding efforts of the NSW Rural Fire Service – the danger they put themselves in on a daily basis to protect the community and its surrounding area is heroic,” said Brett Tollman, Chief Executive Officer of The Travel Corporation.
The funds will directly benefit volunteer firefighters with the NSW RFS.
“We felt compelled to reach out and help, so it’s an absolute privilege to contribute to their commitment, hence our December donation of $100,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service,” Tollman said. “Funds go towards technology and necessities such as radios, floodlights, GPS for the trucks, maintenance, fuel, food and training.”
