New RFS station opens at Crowther

Opening of the new Crowther RFS station.

Last Saturday, a new Rural Fire Service (RFS) station was opened at Crowther, replacing the farm shed that housed the Brigade’s tankers.

The opening was attended by NSW RFS Area Commander Chief Superintendent Ian Stewart AFSM, Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke and members from the Crowther Brigade.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the new station has allowed the local brigade to house their current vehicles and provide better amenities for volunteers to protect their communities. “I am sure they will be greatly welcomed by the volunteers and the local communities,” she said.

“You only have to look at the last season to see how hard our skilled firefighters and support crews work to keep us safe when bush and grass fires and emergency situations threaten.”

A ceremony was also held to present 11 members of the Crowther Brigade with long service medals and/or clasps. David Johnson was presented a long service medal for his 68 years at the Crowther Brigade.

“Congratulations to all of the medal recipients on their dedication, commitment and service to their communities,” Chief Supt Stewart said.
