Stirling Ridge HR Burn

Sunday saw the completion of the hazard reduction burn at Stirling Ridge along with the practical assessment of our newest recruits to the ACTRFS.  From all accounts the burn was a great success as well as the basic firefighters completing and passing their assessments.

In this posting we were challenging our photographers to get more than just the usual fire & smoke shots but to capture it from different angles and well as the faces of the ACTRFS.

A keen bunch of new recruits ready for the day's activities (they weren't so happy after the rake hoe assessment!)

  1. Joycey looks like he is off in a world of his own, actually!

    Nice shot though.
