Welcome to Mark Ryan MP, new Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Corrective Services
Thursday, 12 Jan 2017
Yesterday RFBAQ President Jon Bundy had an extremely positive meeting with the new Minister responsible for Rural Fire Brigades and Emergency Volunteers.
The RFBAQ worked through with the Minister the progress that is being made on our 6 key strategies with the focus on the ‘Legal Status of Brigades’ which is currently underway as a joint RFBAQ/QFES initiative and the pursuit of an Emergency Volunteer Respect Act for Queensland.
Minister Ryan expressed his wish to get out in the field visiting brigades as often as possible and also is looking forward to visiting the RFBAQ office in Gympie.
We welcome his desire for a collaborative approach and consensus building, we look forward to working together to build on the ever increasing support to the Rural Fire Brigades that defend 93% of Queensland.
