Hi I’m Dot and I joined the Pearcedale Fire Brigade on 30/11/1981. Since then I have participated in most aspects of the brigade, including bush fires, house fires, motor vehicle accidents and some others like a bird rescued from a tree (poor thing had got fishing line wrapped around its leg and a twig and so it was stuck).

I have attended competitions, been a junior leader, a member of the Support Group (auxiliary), assisted both Casey Group of Fire Brigades and Westernport Group as a radio operator, and for the last 19 years I have been the Brigade Secretary.
