New recruits show some skill - Uriarra Hazard Reduction

On Sunday 22 June 2014 the newest batch of ACT Rural Fire Service fire fighters were put to the test as they conducted a hazard reduction burn under the watchful eye of ACT RFS assessors. Great job by all the new recruits who go back to their brigades as qualified fire fighters.

The burn was also used to reduce a fuel hazard in the area and for ecological reasons.

Inspecting something interesting?

After the burn, 'newbies' no more
