AAMI threads iconic VICSES uniform with tales of extraordinary heroism
Suncorp Group’s AAMI brand is proudly celebrating almost 20 years of sponsoring the Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) with new, commemorative uniforms to show our appreciation for all volunteers.
For the first time in its 70-year history, tales of VICSES volunteers’ bravery and heroism, shared by Victorians they’ve helped, have been woven into the fabric of the iconic orange VICSES uniform.
As part of AAMI’s 20-year sponsorship of VICSES, AAMI has woven those stories into two specially commissioned commemorative VICSES uniform, to show volunteers just how grateful Victorians are for their commitment to the community’s safety.
The uniforms come on the back of the most challenging and busiest 18 months in VICSES’ history and will be rotated among VICSES units across the state to help boost morale among the volunteers.
We wear your support
For nearly 20 years, AAMI has been helping the VICSES support Victorians when they need it most. Their stories of courage, dedication and bravery are woven into the very fabric of our communities.
The uniform also featured on a mural at Knox Place, at one of Melbourne’s busiest CBD intersections, worn by VICSES Craigieburn volunteer Anita Lutz.
