National Emergency Medals at Horsham annual dinner
The Horsham Fire Brigade combined its annual dinner with a presentation of National Emergency Medals to brigade members who participated in the 2009 fires.
The Black Saturday fire impacted Horsham severely, with the loss of 11 homes and the Horsham Golf Club. It was an extraordinary day, and the fire fight will live in the memories of those who participated for the rest of their lives.
Ex Chief Officer Trevor Roche attended the evening as guest speaker. Trevor had served part of his career as a Regional Officer at District 17, based in Horsham, and he spoke about his time in the area working with CFA volunteers.
