Council collects a State Government Emergency Management Fire & Rescue Levy (EMFR) which is applied to all properties within the whole region. This charge extends to all rateable properties in accordance with the Fire and Emergency Services Act 1990. All amounts collected through this levy are forwarded to Queensland Fire & Emergency Services.
Changes to the EMFR Levy
The State Government has recently made changes to the EMFR Levy as a result of an increase in permanent firefighers located at the Airlie Beach Station. The increase has triggered a change in class from Class C Levy to Class B Levy and therefore an increase in the levy amount for property owners in the Airlie Beach Fire and Rescue station area is required.
