Captain Koala turns out to help kids in trauma

A hug from a CFA comfort bear can help a child take their mind off what’s going on around them in emergency situations.

After many years of dedicated service our CFA comfort bear is going into a well-earned retirement. Stepping up to take his place is an endearing character known to us all – CFA’s own Captain Koala.

Captain Koala turns out to help kids in trauma

Captain Koala is all dressed up in his CFA yellows and is keen to get out and help brigades working with kids affected by trauma.

CFA brigades, districts, regions and departments can purchase him for $10.50 each.

Brigades can also purchase Captain Koalas to use as a fundraising item with a recommended retail price of $19.95.

How can you purchase Captain Koala?

Districts, regions and HQ departments can order him from the State Logistics Centre (SLC) using the SAP code CKPLUSH.

Brigades should follow their usual process of submitting a brigade purchase order through their district using the product name Captain Koala Comfort Plush.

SLC hopes to be able to fill all orders immediately but if demand exceeds supply there may be a number limit put on orders until a new team of Captain Koalas arrives.
