South Coogee Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade would like to wish Chief Bush Fire Officer Don Johnston all the best as he retires today. Don has been committed to furthering the Local Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades for many years, and without his sterling efforts South Coogee would not be where it is today.
Last weekend saw the opening of the new Cockburn Emergency Services Station, housing South Coogee BFB and the Cockburn SES unit. This station would not have been built without Don’s efforts. He has campaigned for it’s construction for many years, and worked hard throughout its build to ensure a quality finish. It’s a great legacy for him to leave behind, and with it being used as a mould for other similar stations being built around the metro area a great compliment to his vision.
I’m sure Don won’t be a stranger, we hope he isn’t. Our doors are always open to him and we expect to see him any many of our functions going forward.
Don, best of luck from the entire South Coogee Bush Fire Brigade!
