With fantastic support from some local business groups (Bayswater Traders Association) and our local MP Heidi Victoria, we were able to raise sufficient funds to proceed with the purchase of the Slip On.
A number of members in the brigade have been instrumental in progressing this project and we need to acknowledge their support. Lt Allan Budziarski, Secretary Robyn Wills & SFF Matthew
Due to our networks we were able to work with CFA HQ and DSE to put into the field a revised Slip On design, the first one for CFA and the now approved design for this type of appliance moving forward. Another first for Bayswater!
Without the assistance and help from the following sponsors, we would not have been able to fund this appliance. We would like to acknowledge our supporters:
