Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

RU­RAL Fire Ser­vice com­mis­sioner Shane Fitzsim­mons has been a mem­ber of the RFS for more than 25 years and NSW Com­mis­sioner since 2007. He was awarded the Na­tional Medal in 1999 and the Aus­tralian Fire Ser­vice Medal in 2001. He vis­ited Shanes Park for the brigade’s 50th an­niver­sary. While sug­ges­tions have been made among RFS mem­bers that the Shanes Park RFS is his “per­sonal brigade”, Mr Fitzsim­mons has nei­ther con­firmed nor de­nied the ve­rac­ity of the claims. But he can sleep well tonight know­ing his Shanes Park fireys would come straight to his aid should he ever need them.
