Take your hat off to firies

MP pays trib­ute to vol­un­teers

Isis Town and Country - - News - By STEPHEN BEN­NETT MEM­BER FOR BUR­NETT

AS YOU are aware, we are head­ing into the bush­fire sea­son, where our ded­i­cated lo­cal ru­ral fire bridge mem­bers will be out in force to pro­tect com­mu­ni­ties.

It’s a time where we should take our hats off to those ru­ral firies from Childers, Good­wood, Woodgate, Bux­ton and Booyal, and recog­nise and cel­e­brate their con­tri­bu­tions.

On be­half of the Isis, I’d like to take the op­por­tu­nity to say a huge thank you to them for their in­valu­able work.

They are ex­tra­or­di­nary peo­ple who take time out of their lives, away from their work and fam­ily com­mit­ments, to pro­tect peo­ple and prop­erty from fires.

The Isis dis­trict is in good hands with our lo­cal ru­ral fire brigades.

Stay safe this bush­fire sea­son.
