Last month Executive Committee Member Tony Dodd and Executive Officer Tim Sonsee travelled to Brisbane to represent our Association on the Council of Australian Volunteer Fire Association (CAVFA).
CAVFA provides an opportunity for us to have a combined national voice.
"Some of the challenges we face are not just in our own brigades, they are in our regions, they are statewide and are across the nation," said Tim Sonsee.
Tony and Tim participated in a planning meeting and discussed issues of Presumptive Legislation, Occupational Health and Safety Issues, and other problems facing volunteers nation-wide. This included brainstorming ideas for CAVFA to become more known and relevant to brigades.
If you would like to know more about CAVFA and what was discussed at the meeting, email or call Tim Sonsee on 0427 800 038.
