The Galston Rural Fire Brigade would like to congratulate the 12 new members who recently signed up in our recruitment drive for finishing their Bush Firefighter (BF) training course and officially becoming qualified. It’s great to see so many enthusiastic members join the team.
A big thank you also goes out to all involved with their training. Galston firies committed a total of 308 hours to new member training – which doesn’t include the admin hours or the recruitment drive itself, not to mention fire calls, HRs, meetings and additional training put in by everyone during this time. A great team effort!
Pile Burns and Hazard Reductions
