The AVBFB knows our incredible members are far from one trick ponies but not everyone gets to see that. While bushfires are certainly where our local knowledge and skills are most honed, the incredible 26,000 women and men of WA’s largest emergency service work with whoever else can help and do whatever is needed when disaster strikes our community.
And that brings us to this good news story we learned about this week.
On the 25th and 26th of November, the amazing ladies and gents of the Bunbury Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade and Cowaramup Volunteer Bushfire Brigade joined the FCO and Dunsborough FRS to complete their external structural fire course.
The photo above was sent to us by Benjamin James from the Bunbury VBFB and he tells us it includes the course participants with 2 of the 3 trainers that were there.
Ben tells us that training with other services was not only enjoyable but also taught members of both more than they otherwise would have learned.
So here’s to the great inter-service relationships being formed that will ultimately benefit the whole community and thank you to the guys and girls who took yet another weekend out to get even better at keeping the rest of us safe – in buildings, cars and the bush!
