I have been with Pearcedale Fire Brigade for 38 years and have had many roles, including Lieutenant for 22 years, Captain for 10 years and am currently the President.

As President, I preside over meetings to ensure they run in an orderly manner. I am also involved in the organising of major Brigade functions, such as our Annual Dinner. I make myself available to all members for advice and mentoring where required.

Additionally, I am a Deputy Group Officer for the Casey Group of Fire Brigades which involves preparation of crews and teams for long-distance deployments and assisting brigades within the group where required.
