Campaspe News - - NEWS - By VIVI­ENNE DUCK

ROCHESTER Fire Brigade has been named as a fi­nal­ist for the an­nual Vic­to­rian Fire Aware­ness Awards.

The brigade’s role in the Dis­trict 20 smok­ing cer­e­mony has landed it in the fi­nal of the awards, which re­flect on the im­por­tant work done by com­mu­nity groups, in­dus­try and gov­ern­ment agen­cies in rais­ing fire aware­ness.

Run by Vic­to­ria’s fire agen­cies — For­est Fire Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria, Coun­try Fire Author­ity and Metropoli­tan Fire Brigade — the fi­nal­ists will be ac­knowl­edged at a cer­e­mony in Mel­bourne in early De­cem­ber.

“The qual­ity of this year’s en­tries was out­stand­ing, demon­strat­ing that Vic­to­ri­ans un­der­stand the im­por­tance of fire aware­ness and safety,” For­est Fire Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria chief fire of­fi­cer Stephanie Ro­tarangi said. “The nom­i­na­tions ac­knowl­edge the ef­fort that com­mu­nity groups and in­dus­try mem­bers put into help­ing pro­tect their com­mu­ni­ties.”

“We look for­ward to con­grat­u­lat­ing all fi­nal­ists and pre­sent­ing the awards at the cer­e­mony in De­cem­ber.”

The awards have been pre­sented for more than 30 years by Vic­to­ria’s fire agen­cies and are sup­ported by RACV In­surance, ABC Ra­dio Vic- to­ria and Emer­gency Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria.

The awards will be pre­sented on Mon­day 4 De­cem­ber at the RACV City Club, where fi­nal­ists will be in­vited to cel­e­brate along­side in­dus­try and gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

RACV In­surance will be award­ing the RACV In­surance Award for Ex­cel­lence worth $10,000 for the most out­stand­ing ap­pli­ca­tion.
