Your View: Thank you, volunteers

EACH year, SA Country Fire Service volunteers attend thousands of incidents across the state.

During National Volunteers Week, May 21-27, we took the opportunity to say thank you.

Thank you for the hours upon hours of unpaid time spent at incidents, the hours being professionally trained each week, and the time away from family and friends.

Thank you also to the many employers who allow CFS members the time to protect the community, and of course to the families of our members who help support through the late-night call outs and sometimes long deployments.

The fire danger season is now over, but that doesn’t mean our volunteers won’t still be out there attending structure fires, road crashes, hazardous material spills and supporting other agencies at storm events.

So thank you for the work you’ve done and for the work you will do in the future, all unpaid.

Greg Nettleton
Chief officer, SA Country Fire Service
