RURAL FIRE BOSS
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.
