Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today welcomed two new recruits to Fire and Rescue NSW in Berry with the latest recruits graduating from the Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Emergency Services Academy at Orchard Hills.
Mr Ward has congratulated these two new recruits for embarking on a rewarding career that will ultimately put them on the frontline when it comes to protecting our local communities.
“These firefighters will be a great boost to the people of Berry who can rest assured that their first responders have received world class training and will be equipped for whatever challenges they face,” he said.
“On behalf of the local community, I am very pleased to welcome these two new recruits to Fire and Rescue NSW in Berry.
“The men and women who graduate as part of this class have already shown that they have what it takes to protect the irreplaceable.
“These Fire and Rescue personnel begin their careers at a time when our frontline workers have never been more necessary, and they know they will have the full support of the NSW Government throughout their new careers.
“This month the NSW Government announced a $192 million investment in response to the Independent Bushfire Inquiry, including $36 million for a new first responder mental health strategy, that will support all emergency service first responders,” Mr Ward concluded.
