All ACT and NSW volunteer firefighters have been invited to use the Y pools and gyms for free this summer. The offer also extends to their immediate family.
Participating Y facilities in the ACT are the Gungahlin Leisure Centre and Canberra Olympic Pool.
Y chief executive officer Susannah Le Bron at times of national disaster, the Y's role was to support local communities.
"Nothing is more important than our volunteers' mental and physical health at this intense time, so we are inviting volunteers and their families to take a much deserved break," she said.
