2016 Yellow Ribbon Day is almost here – Celebrate the 36,000 Rural Fire Brigade Volunteers
Thursday, 8 Sep 2016
If you know of a volunteer, are a volunteer, or value the commitment made by Rural Fire Brigades; on the 11th October 2016 wear a yellow ribbon to show your support.
Through this you will be giving your visible support to those who wear the yellow coat and ride the yellow trucks.
The RFBAQ has also sent every State Member of Parliament a yellow ribbon, as Tuesday 11th 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 93% of Queensland.
An RFBAQ initiative born out of protest, Yellow Ribbon Day is now an annual event to acknowledging the commitment and dedication that 36,000 rural fire brigade volunteers provide to Queensland.
Bushfire, Flood or Cyclone - the 1,440 Rural Fire Brigades across the State protect all communities from disaster.
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.
Contact the RFBAQ office for yellow ribbons (free of charge) or visit the RFBAQ to download posters and other promotional items.
