Praise for Clarence Valley Anglican School cadet firefighters


The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) today congratulated 25 Clarence Valley Anglican School students on their successful completion of the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program.

NSW RFS Region North Operations Manager Superintendent Bryan Daly congratulated the graduating students for their dedication and enthusiasm throughout the nine week course.

“The course teaches young people about the important contribution firefighters make to the local community, provides them with firefighting skills and fire behaviour knowledge and instills values such as teamwork, leadership and confidence,” Superintendent Daly said.

“As well as examining fire behaviour, the students have learned essential fire safety techniques and gained an appreciation of the work that emergency services do every day across the state.”

Superintendent Daly thanked Principal Martin Oates and the Clarence Valley Anglican School teachers and staff for supporting the program.

“This is the seventh time the program has been made available at the Clarence Valley Anglican School and it is fantastic that 25 students took part in the program this year,” Superintendent Daly said.

“I would also like to thank the Clarence Valley District volunteers who helped deliver the program under the direction of Operations Officer Ian Smith.

"NSW RFS members enjoy working with schools and communities to ensure that everyone is as well prepared as possible for the very real threat of fire and the Service is proud to pass on the ideals of community service, dedication and teamwork to the next generation.”
