One of the Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades’ excellent Midwest Zone Representatives, Alison Lloyd attended the opening of a new SES facility in Geraldton and Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade “meet and greet” at the Cape Burney Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade on Saturday.

As you can see in the photo of the Cape Burney event above, volunteers heard from Emergency Services Minister, Hon Fran Logan MLA, FES Commissioner Darren Klemm and Regional Superintendent Craig Smith who spoke about the Bushfire Centre of Excellence (BCoE), Local Government insurance issues and how 85% of ESL funding comes from the metropolitan area.

Among the questions and issues raised by volunteers, funding for mitigation was the main topic of interest.

Thank you Minister and Commissioner for taking the time to personally visit our regional volunteers and well done Alison for attending and capturing the events to share.
