Who said winter was a quiet time for Bush Fire Volunteers?
Like so many other incredible volunteers in WA’s largest emergency service, Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades (AVBFB) State President Dave Gossage spent part of this morning giving his time and expertise through an early morning chat with ABC Breakfast Radio host Hilary Smale – this time about the amazing work our Historical Group is doing to preserve and learn from the proud history of the Western Australian Bush Fire Service.
Hilary began the conversation by asking Dave about his first experience with a fire truck and his answer goes to the very essence of what makes our service so special.
Dave also talked about the value of learning from the past and need to consider the future with a better understanding of our past.
At the end of the interview, Hilary asks Dave about the recently announced increases to Local Government insurance premiums.
