Firefighters from across the country are getting ready to step up to support mental health services.

This year’s Melbourne Firefighter Stair Climb on Saturday 7 September will see 600 firefighters climb the 28 floors of Crown Metropol Hotel.

If that doesn’t sound gruelling enough, participants will wear 25kgs of firefighting gear.

The team are aiming to raise $700,000 for our Lifeline Melbourne service, along with the Emergency Services Foundation and the Black Dog Institute.

Funds raised for our Lifeline Melbourne service will support the employment of trainers and supervisors for our volunteer workforce, who answer calls from around Australia.

Our skilled and trained staff and volunteers provide crisis support to people who are overwhelmed and need to reach out and talk to someone. 

Our team can guide someone through a situation, give them strategies to cope and provide some perspective.
