South Coogee welcomes new Captain and 1st Lieutenant

Yesterday evening South Coogee voted in a new Captain and 1st Lt. With Brad Treasure and Les Woodcock both stepping down, Brad for work commitments and Les with his promotion and move in to DFES as Community Emergency Services Manager, we needed new leadership.

We are very happy to announce Michael Tait as South Coogee’s new Captain. Mick has… been with the brigade for over 7 years, holding most of the Senior Officer positions within the brigade previously. His experience and sound leadership will be a significant benefit to the brigade.

Justin Goodwin takes up the role of 1st Lieutenant. Justin has a long background within Law Enforcement and Military which will provide South Coogee with needed leadership and management experience. Justin has previously held the role of training officer within the Brigade and sits on the management committee.

We’d like to thank both Brad and Les for their commitment to the brigade over many years and are happy that they will remain active members within the Brigade.

Please wish Michael and Justin every success and support them and the brigade through this transition at a busy time of the year.
