The Travel Corporation donates $100,000 to Australia’s fire service

TORONTO — The Travel Corporation (TTC) is throwing its support behind Australia during its time of crisis with a donation of $100,000 that will go towards the NSW Rural Fire Service.

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.

Brett Tollman, Chief Executive Officer of TTC, said the company felt “compelled” to help.

“It’s an absolute privilege to contribute to their commitment, hence our December donation of $100,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service,” he said. “Funds go towards technology and necessities such as radios, floodlights, GPS for the trucks, maintenance, fuel, food and training.

“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.”
