The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades (AVBFB) is very pleased that our sole advocacy for the early intervention of the Premier as Public Sector Commissioner regarding a proper Contract for FES Commissioner Darren Klemm has led to a very sensible decision to negotiate before the South West bush fire Season. It is a bit of a shame that we didn’t receive a response to this letter, but since we achieved what we set out to achieve, we are happy.
Congratulations Darren. We appreciate the listening you have done to date and hope that with proper tenure, we will all stand stronger united on the sensible reforms you have indicated are necessary.
