A KITCHEN in a real shed instead of just a lean-to shack and better communications are what two local Rural Fire Service plan to spend recent Narooma Golf Club donations on.
Dalmeny/Kianga RFS brigade senior deputy Trevor Peddle and firefighter Simon Carr last week accepted a $2,500 donation as part of the club’s commitment to those important services in the community.
The firies told general manager Dominic Connaughton the money would be used toward improving vital communications systems and updating the brigade’s current computer system.
This work has been on the back burner for some time as funds are very hard to come by and they appreciate the relationship the brigade has with the Narooma Golf Club and the assistance they have given.
Tinpot RFS Captain Peter Kershaw also visited the club last week to accept a $2,500 donation that his brigade will put toward kitchen facilities in the new shed being built right now with concrete slab already poured.
While the brigade also has a new fire truck, up until now Tinpot has had to make do with a lean-to shed as its fire station.
“It is so interesting to hear the many stories from these volunteers and the amount of work they do for our community in making our area as save as possible,” Mr Connaughton said.
“Fires can start at a moment’s notice in the many hectares of bushland around our homes and properties and it is comforting to know that they are there ready and prepared to keep our communities safe.
“We are so grateful that we are able to contribute to the local fire services and thank them for all the hard work they do on behalf of Narooma Golf Club and all its members.”
