As we published in this update on 12 February, the Association consulted with volunteers and worked cooperatively with DFES on Bush Fire Service branding, including the design of the 5 year service medals, before making a formal request for change in late December last year.

In his February letter, FES Commissioner Wayne Gregson committed to do what is necessary to have the word “volunteer” added to not only the 5 year service medals, but all future Bush Fire Service branding in the future.

DFES has today advised that the medals are currently in production and delivery is expected to be early to mid-May. Every effort will be made to clear the backlog with additional supplies to distributed to DFES regional offices as soon as they become available.
