A rel­a­tive new­comer was awarded Te Puke Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade’s fire­fighter of the year award for 2018.

Jodi Pur­die only joined the bri­gade in Septem­ber 2017.

The award is pre­sented to the mem­ber who con­trib­utes self­lessly through­out the year and goes above the nor­mal call of duty.

The awards, to­gether with long ser­vice awards, were pre­sented at the bri­gade’s hon­our night, an event that recog­nises the huge con­tri­bu­tion our vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers make to the com­mu­nity.
