Gosford rural firefighter Steve Robinson has been elected NSW Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA) Vice-President for the 2021-2023 term.
Robinson has been a volunteer with the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) since 1994, when he joined the Narara Rural Fire Brigade.
He has since been a member of Gosford Bulk Water Brigade and currently, Gosford Operational Support Brigade.
Over the years he has served in multiple brigade leadership and administrative positions including Senior Deputy Captain and Brigade President.
He is the current Secretary/Treasurer at Gosford Operational Support Brigade.
A strong advocate for the Association at the local brigade level, Robinson was elected to the RFSA Board of Directors in 2015 and was the Association Secretary from 2015-2021.
He is ready to start work enhancing the RFSA’s profile and the benefits it provides to rural firefighters.
“I’m looking forward to working with my fellow Directors and the RFSA State Council to build and increase the strengths of the Association,” he said.
RFSA President Scott Campbell said he is eager to work alongside Robinson for the 2021-2023 term.
“Steve has a long history of advocacy on behalf of his fellow volunteers and I very much look forward to working with him as we support our members in their work protecting the community,” he said.
Robinson brings with him over 29 years of experience as a small business proprietor, delivering training courses at many levels including corporate expertise training.
The RFSA is managed by its members and is the authoritative voice in representing over 70,000 members of the NSW RFS.
It offers a broad range of operational and welfare support for volunteers including sponsorship of training exercises, a brigade and district grants program, educational scholarships, Volunteers’ Family Days, advocacy and chaplaincy, counselling and family support.
