The day began with Trevor welcoming everybody. Trevor spoke about the importance that this vehicle has not only to the community of Cressy, but also to the Lismore Group
Terry Mulder then spoke about the support his Government will be giving CFA in the future.
Brad made a speech and thanked everyone for their involvement in making this day so successful. Brad particularly pointed out the fantastic work and support that the brigade received from previous Operations Officer Brian Brady. Brad is quoted as saying “Without Brian’s support we do
not believe Cressy brigade would have been lucky enough to receive this vehicle”.
A special thanks went out to the brigade members and their families for their continuing support.
