Barwon Heads Fire Brigade held its annual awards dinner with three of the four award recipients being female operational members.
The awards were presented to:
* Firefighter of the Year – Eliza Carlon.
* Encouragement Award – Colin Bridges.
* Captain’s Award – Libby Burnett, community safety co-ordinator.
* Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL Sub-Branch Annual Award – Helen Wood, captain.
Barwon Heads Fire Brigade captain Helen Wood said the annual dinner and awards night was a chance to recognise the effort made by members to help keep their beloved community safe.
“Our members don’t seek the limelight nor do they believe in the individual, as the true testament is how well we work as a team. However, we have had the tradition of annual brigade awards in place for many years as a way to thank members who go above and beyond,” she said.
“It is particularly thrilling to see the female members of the brigade recognised for their contribution, proving that diversity is integral to the success and longevity of our brigade and the CFA as a whole.”
