THOU­SANDS of spec­ta­tors made their way to Ol­lie Rob­bins Oval over the week­end to watch as fire­fight­ers from across NSW com­peted in the NSW State Fire­fight­ing Cham­pi­onships.

The Cham­pi­onships were opened by for­mer Dubbo Sta­tion Of­fi­cer Jeremy Fewtrell who is now Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Fire and Res­cue NSW,.

Two teams from Dubbo Fire Sta­tion com­peted as did one team each from Del­roy, Welling­ton and Trangie Fire Sta­tions.

All lo­cal teams fin­ished in the top 20 with Trangie the best placed team in 6th place, while Dubbo was not far be­hind in 8th.

And who bet­ter to run a fire­works dis­play than a big group of fire­fight­ers! Our lo­cal firies lit up the night sky with an awe­some show on Fri­day night.
