Fire brigades recognised

ARARAT - Ararat Rural City presented the Community Service of the Year award to the 20 local fire brigades in the municipality.

Mayor Cr Paul Hooper said this year's award was for an organisation that had given outstanding service to the Ararat Rural City community over many years but especially in the last 12 months.

"This group of dedicated volunteers continues to provide much needed assistance throughout the year but also recently with the fires located within our region," he said.

"They unselfishly put their lives on the line every day helping the broader community.
