Emergency Services Levy

Emergency Services Levy (ESL)


The Emergency Services Levy (ESL) appearing on your rates notice is an important contribution to assist our fire fighters both in an employed and volunteer capacity, for our Fire and Rescue Services, Bush Fire Brigade and the State Emergency Service.  This is not a Council charge, but is collected by local governments on behalf of the State Government.  If you have any enquires relating to the levy, please contact the Fire and Emergency Services Authority on 1300 136 099 or access their website at
