The Wyong Fire Brigade have been crowned the NSW State Champions at the NSW Fire Fighters’ Championships.

“Over the past few years, Firefighters from Wyong have travelled all around NSW, interstate to Victoria, and even across the ditch to New Zealand, to compete in the NSW Fire Fighters’ Championships,” said Brigade Captain, Jamie Loader. “Our determination, persistence and hard work definitely paid off at the 2018 Championships, held in Dubbo, where we were named State Champions.

“The top teams from across the state competed in a range of events, all with their eye on the famous Alfred Webb Cup.

“After three days of tough competition, Wyong led the way, placing in 11 out of the 14 events, and taking gold in five, including three state records in Ladder Practice, Rescue and Urban Pump, Breathing Apparatus and Foam.

“Wyong Fire Station will need to find room for an array of medals and trophies awarded, including The Alfred Webb Cup for overall winners of the State Championships,” Captain Loader said.

The win was dedicated to long time Wyong Birgade member, the late, Scott Anlezark, who lost his battle with cancer this year. Anlezark was a longtime supporter of the Brigade’s involvement in the Championships and was even a part of Wyong’s first Championship team in 2010.
