Hawthorn and Collingwood competed in the inaugural Emergency Services Match on Friday 5 July, 7.50pm at the MCG.
The two clubs faced off at the MCG in Round 16 in recognition and celebration of the work of Emergency Services workers from across the state.
Partnering with Emergency Management Victoria, Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Country Fire Authority, Life Saving Victoria, Forest Fire Management, Victorian State Emergency Service and ESTA (Triple 000), the Emergency Services Match used the power of football to shine a light on the men and women who do extraordinary things, risking their lives every day to protect and support our communities.
The game provided an opportunity to raise much needed funds for the Emergency Services Foundation, an organisation established in 1983 after the Ash Wednesday fires, which supports Emergency Services workers in times of need through a range of support services.
The Emergency Services Match raised awareness of the mental health issues faced by the people doing this vital work in our communities.
