“Thank a Rural Fire Brigade Volunteer today”
Channel 7 and the RFBAQ have partnered to create a community service announcement that will raise awareness of Rural Fire Brigade (RFB) volunteers and what we do to defend our communities.
The advert was filmed at Federal RFB in the Caloundra Area with volunteers from Tinbeerwah RFB, Black Mountain RFB, Ilkley & District RFB and Curra RFB joining together for the days filming.
A consistent difficulty with community awareness is that some members of the public believe that all fire trucks have paid firefighters in them and are unaware that the vast majority of the state is defended by Rural Fire Brigade volunteers.
The principle aim of this commercial is to highlight that brigade members are your neighbours who for no pay undertake to train and fight fires to defend Queensland communities.

The RFBAQ would again like to thank Channel 7 on the Sunshine Coast for the excellent production and the enthusiasm shown to supporting brigades and getting the word out about those who wear the yellow coats and ride the yellow trucks.
