Massey recognised for decades to RFS
DESPITE being awarded a medal and clasps for enduring service to the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service last Thursday, James Massey was more concerned that his mate Roni Bau receive the day’s plaudits.
Roni was rewarded for his 40-plus years of service, with James also singled out for his 24 years of service to the Sugarloaf Brigade.
“To me Roni, being acknowledged for over 40 years of dedication, taking into account he is not just the Group Officer, he is also the First Officer of Applethorpe, Fire Warden of Applethorpe and north Granite Belt – he is a person who has given an enormous amount of his life to the RFS,” Mr Massey said.
On top of Mr Massey’s 24 years for Sugarloaf, he did 20 years for Liston before that. “I think Roni and I complement each other,” he said. Mr Massey was presented his medal by Acting Area Director for Rural Fire Service Darling Downs John Welke.
