Endorsement from the Emergency Management Commissioner

Craig_LapsleyDear Victorian firefighters,

I am very proud to support the 4th Annual Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb run by the Firefighters Charity Fund.

The event represents a fantastic opportunity for firefighters to improve their physical fitness, build camaraderie within and between our Fire Services, maintain skills in the operation of Breathing Apparatus as well as to help raise funds for Lifeline and Black Dog Institute.

The funds raised will go to improve support services, fund research, remove stigmas and raise awareness of Mental health issues like Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Suicide – all issues that significantly and deeply effect the emergency services community.

Please sign up to “Step up to fight Depression, PTSD and Suicide”, get a Team together from your brigade or donate to sponsor a mate – I hope to see you on Saturday 2nd September at Crown Metropol.

Yours sincerely


Craig Lapsley, PSM
Emergency Management Commissioner
