About us

AFCA is a network of grassroots volunteer and career firefighters who want to see our governments take stronger action on climate change. We are not connected to any political party. If you are involved in firefighting in any way, please join us. Please get in touch via the contact form or email: cam.walker@foe.org.au (we have an occasional email newsletter we send to people).
