The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades (AVBFB) sincerely congratulates every nominee for 2019 awards, and of course, especially those who are members of our incredible Bush Fire Service.
We are so proud to represent WA’s incredible 26,000 Bush Fire volunteers who donate their time, skills and experience to serve and protect our community and know that as well as the finalists named below, there are so many others who are equally worthy.
The Association looks forward to celebrating the work of these finalists and every single other member of our amazing extended family at the WAFES Conference Gala Dinner in September.
Congratulations to all!
