Emergency sector volunteers are firm that they do not want to be paid for their services, they are however, just as firm in their view that being a volunteer should not be a cost to the individual. The forum has an advocacy role in establishing incentive schemes to encourage new recruits and to retain existing members. Advocacy in the area of tax incentives, supply of personal protective clothing and safety equipment, along with other financial incentives are all seen as important to the forum.
