BUSH FIRE VOLUNTEERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Posted in fire, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on April 15, 2017

 

The 114th WA Volunteer Fire Rescue Services Easter Championships are being held this weekend at the Gilbert Fraser reserve in North Fremantle. Go and have a look at it from 9am this easter Sunday morning. It’s fun to watch!

Bush firies from as far away as Port Hedland, Esperance and even Victoria are taking part and they deserve recognition and support for their tireless work to protect their communities.

The event has been held at the North Freo oval for over 40 years but I was not aware of it until I read a tiny one line somewhere on Thursday.

It needs to get a lot better promotion so that the local community comes out in droves to watch it. It’s rather pathetic that just under 100 spectators attend the events and they were family and a few supporters.

    Hi Roel
    Glad you shot this.We watched it last year for about an hour after stumbling upon it by accident during a walk. Like you, we were amazed at the lack of spectators as it’s event full of drama, skill and tradition. Part of me loves the fact that it is secret, but they do deserve an audience šŸ™‚
