Show your support, Tomorrow is Yellow Ribbon Day!
Monday, 13 Oct 2014
Tomorrow wear a Yellow Ribbon to show your visible support to those who wear the yellow coat and ride the yellow trucks. Yellow Ribbon Day is about raising awareness and showing your appreciation of the 35,000 rural fire volunteers who dedicate their time to protect and defend their communities.
Last year was the inaugural Yellow Ribbon Day, and this year RFBAQ has again sent every State Member of Parliament a yellow ribbon to wear tomorrow which is the first sitting day in October. This is a visible way for MP's to show their support for the volunteer fire-fighters and brigades that are currently out protecting communities across Queensland.
This year's event is already shaping to be bigger and better with businesses, brigades and MP's again getting on board. If your business or brigade is holding a yellow ribbon awareness day then send your pictures in to RFBAQ.
