I just wanted to thank you all for your positive support with the gas cage for the Pomonal Rural Fire Brigade.
My request may have appeared odd with such safety equipment being standard in most workplaces, but many volunteer organisations, especially in rural areas without sponsors, struggle to keep up with safe practices due to lack of funding.
Your support makes a big difference because we have been increasingly offering BBQs at events to raise funds for a small training room and ladies toilets that we want to build in an extension to our fire station. Although we should lead by example, we had to keep our gas cylinders inside the station due to the increasing number of thefts from fire stations. With your help we will not only be safer but also a good step closer to having better amenities.
