Firefighters Ambulance Cover

June 03, 2019

Workers who join Protect under the Firefighters Injury & Illness Cover receive an Ambulance Victoria Family Membership. So how does that work for existing members of Ambulance Victoria?

Existing should maintain your cover and renew a 12-month subscription before expiry.

Send your receipt together with your banking details to ATC via and they will arrange for reimbursement. At that time you will also be reimbursed for the period of cover you paid for since signing with Protect.

If you currently have a 3 or 5 year membership, or have any further queries, please contact a Protect Field Team Officer for assistance on 1300 344 249.
