Adelaide fire heroes awarded for bravery, integrity

BONNIE DAVIDSON:

The firefighting service has been very pleased with the work that the Fire Fighters Association has done.

As well as the community safety projects that you’ve been involved with the past 12 months, you’ve also been involved in getting our members out of poverty and into work. How have those two activities been going, and how has it gone for you?
