Scot MacDonald
NEW FIREFIGHTER FOR CESSNOCK
26th May 2017

The Cessnock area will welcome a new firefighter on Monday following today’s Fire & Rescue NSW’s graduation ceremony.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald congratulated the community’s new recruit on graduating and thanked them for their commitment to serve and protect the people of NSW.

“I would like to welcome our newest firefighter, Ross Beeching, to our community, and extend our gratitude to them for devoting their career to such an honourable cause,” Mr MacDonald said.

“Graduates have proven themselves able to meet the challenges of the job, from firefighting and providing advanced first aid, to responding to road‑crashes, fire science and what to do around hazardous materials.

“First responders face extremely challenging situations on a daily basis. Our firefighters need great physical and emotional fortitude, so I’m very pleased that our community will benefit from the enthusiasm of the latest FRNSW class.”

The men and women taking attestations today will join more than 600 individuals who have joined Fire & Rescue NSW as permanent firefighters since 2011.
