Credit where credit is due

The VFFA believes strongly in giving credit where credit is due.

One such occasion, Brian Williams (VFFA Vice President), Captain of the Kurrajong Heights Rural Fire Brigade completed a major Hazard Reduction in his area with support from the NPWS.

Brian said “we received an exceptional level of support from the NPWS, Hawkesbury District Manager, Mr. Glen Meade and his team”.

The VFFA wrote to the Hon. Rob Stokes, Minister for the Environment on August 17th to acknowledge a great effort on the part of the NPWS, assisting Kurrajong Heights Captain, Brian Williams and his team in completing a major Hazard Reduction on the Tabaraga Ridge at Kurrajong Heights.

We have also received feedback from the RFS Monaro Team about some excellent fire mitigation work carried out by the NPWS.

There are many areas of concern relating to the land management practices of the NPWS but on these occasions the NPWS needs to be congratulated.
