Glenorie Rural Fire Brigade News

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!
