On joining my local Brigade 7 years ago I was surprised at the conditions in which Volunteers were expected to operate compared to other states. At Sandy Straits Rural Fire Brigade we received a Rural Fire Levy for the first time when council amalgamated. It is surprising what a difference a little money could make.
Since joining my Brigade I have sourced funding from available grants to make vast improvements to our station so that our members can have a better volunteering experience. I have held all positions in my Brigade and am an active firefighter.
As an RFBAQ District Representative I have good rapport with the RFBAQ State Executive, other District Representatives, attend all Group meetings and make myself available to attend Brigade meetings when requested to do so.
I have also assisted Brigade Secretaries with their brigade grant submissions, assisted Brigades with new shed approvals, lobbied councillors who were considering not collecting a rural fire levy after the introduction of the EMFR levy, instrumental in ensuring that truck replacement reserve funds be used to benefit Brigades and not be used instead of collecting a levy.
I am passionate about making it better for Rural Fire Brigade Volunteers.
