Minister for Emergency Services Visits Local RFS Volunteers and Staff at Cumberland
All NSW RFS members from the Mulgoa, Regentville, Castlereagh, Lapstone, Blaxland and Glenbrook Brigades and staff within the Cumberland and Blue Mountains District were invited to informally meet with the Ministers.
Mr Ayres said he was very proud of the work undertaken by local volunteers and staff and the strong community spirit of the brigades in the region.
“Our NSW RFS brigades have been hard at work over recent weeks attending local incidents as well as standing ready to respond on days of heightened fire danger and I thank everyone for their efforts to prepare our community for a dry and hot summer,” Mr Ayres said.
“Our staff and volunteers are to be commended not only for the work they do reducing fire hazards but also for their extensive engagement with our local community including street meetings, pamphlet drops and the renowned Santa Run.”
Mr Grant thanked volunteers and staff for their tireless work and warned of what is set to be a tough fire season.
“It is a real honour to meet the hardworking men and women on the front line who are dedicated to protecting their local community and hear firsthand their experiences,” Mr Grant said.
“With increased dry conditions across the State posing a significant threat this bush fire season, I want to assure NSW RFS volunteers that the NSW Government is committed to supporting them in the important work they do.”
