SEARCH AND RESCUE As well as attending fire related emergencies, the Rural Fire Service also assists SES and Police with search and rescues. Over the past month Dural has attended two successful searches for missing persons within the greater Sydney region. It is amazing being able to be part of a team who can reunite missing people with their families.
It’s important to always remember when you go for a bushwalk to bring a map, a first aid kit and plenty of water and food.
SHOWCASING OUR MEMBERS – MEET ROB
Dural Brigade is made up of a wide range of people from the community. Each person brings something unique to the brigade and helps to ensure that it’s a great place to be. We are proud of all our members and would love to introduce you to some of our members throughout the year.
This month we would like to introduce Rob. Rob recently moved to Australia and joined the brigade to get involved and meet the people in his local community. Here is a bit of what Rob has to say about his experience in the brigade.
After joining the brigade in January 2022, I was quickly included into crew training days and evenings to prepare for my bush firefighter course and assessment. The team spent a lot of their personal time to make sure I was comfortable in the safe operation of all the components of the trucks and fighting bushfires. I absolutely love the camaraderie of like minded individuals wanting to do their bit for the community. Since passing my assessment, I’ve had the opportunity to respond to bushfires, 000 calls, and providing support to other agencies. Outside of incidents, I’ve really enjoyed meeting the community at local schools, the Get Ready Weekend at Bunnings, and the much anticipated Dural Santa run!
