New Cap­tain

Each year at our An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing we elect of­fi­cers to fill the var­i­ous po­si­tions within the bri­gade. After be­ing Cap­tain of Glenorie Fire Bri­gade for 4 years, Matthew Lloyd has stepped down from this role. Sean O’Brien, who has been the Se­nior Deputy Cap­tain for 2 years, has now been elected to take on the role of Cap­tain and Glynn Lloyd, who was a Deputy Cap­tain, has taken on the role of Se­nior Deputy Cap­tain. Matt has been an ex­cel­lent Cap­tain and has con­trib­uted a lot of time and ef­fort to the bri­gade which makes us the ex­cel­lent team that we are to­day. We are all priv­i­leged to have had such a great leader. Thanks Matt! Matt will still be a sig­nif­i­cant part of our bri­gade and will be tak­ing on the role of one of our Deputy Cap­tains. We are very ex­cited to wel­come Sean as the new Cap­tain also. Con­grat­u­la­tions Sean. We look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing our com­mit­ment of serv­ing the com­mu­nity as part of a great team.

Haz­ard Re­duc­tions

Due to the re­cent wet weather, Haz­ard Re­duc­tions have been put on hold for the time be­ing. Once the ground fuel mois­ture lev­els re­duce we will carry on with the Haz­ard Re­duc­tions that were planned.

New Spinal Board

Be­ing in the Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice doesn't mean we only fight fires. Some­times we are asked to as­sist with other tasks such as res­cues. We have re­cently re­ceived a new Spinal Board and our mem­bers have also re­ceived train­ing on how to use it ef­fi­ciently. Hope­fully we don't have to use it!
