Get ready for Yellow Ribbon Day, Tuesday 3rd September 2019
Thursday, 4 Jul 2019
This years’ celebrations are triply important as Rural Fire Week has moved into fire season and is running from Sunday 1st September to Saturday 7th September, Yellow Ribbon Day is Tuesday the 3rd of September and it is the 70th Anniversary of the formation of Rural Fire Brigade number 1.
If you know of a volunteer, are a volunteer, or value the commitment made by Rural Fire Brigades; on Tuesday the 3rd September 2019 wear a yellow ribbon to show your support.
Through this you will be giving your visible support to those who wear the yellow coat and ride the yellow trucks.
An RFBAQ initiative born out of protest, Yellow Ribbon Day is now an annual event acknowledging the commitment and dedication that 36,000 rural fire brigade volunteers provide to Queensland.
Bushfire, Flood or Cyclone - the 1,400+ Rural Fire Brigades across Queensland protect all communities from disaster.
Yellow Ribbon Day isn't about making money from selling ribbons - it's about raising awareness. All ribbons provided by the RFBAQ are created by hand by RFBAQ staff!
If you have trouble sourcing your own materials and would like some ribbons posted to you, please have your brigade secretary access our online ordering form, it’s quick, easy and free.
With another large fire season approaching, now is the time to show your support and or join your local brigade.
