BART is a system that helps us to better manage our response to incidents and the Lake George Zone is undertaking a 1 month trial.
We encourage every active member to check out the details sent to you by the Secretary in an email last week and sign up for the trial.

We do not often get the opportunity to practice our firefighting skills in a controlled way at a fire where we can experience the realities of smoke, heat, physical effort and all the other things associated with firefighting.
A number of hazard reduction burns are being organised around our Zone over the next few months and these provide excellent training opportunities for everyone.
HRs may not be the most exciting part of our work but they are part of what we all volunteered for. Participating helps you improve your skills and reduces fire risks.
Please take the opportunity to put your name forward when opportunities are notified to your email.
