    A TEAM of Orange firefighters has been recognised for their commitment to work health safety in the NSW Fire Brigade Commissioner’s Safety Awards announced on Friday.

    B Platoon headed up by Orange Station Officer Matthew Jeffery and comprising senior firefighters Timothy Collins and Phillip Pedley and firefighters David Beattie and Rob Buesnel now have a commissioner’s trophy to proudly display at the station.

    Station Officer Jeffery said the Orange firefighters involved with the award should feel proud of the achievement of identifying safer ways in which the firefighters can carry out their job.

    “It is great to be recognised with this award as NSW Fire and Rescue has a commitment to work health safety,” Station Officer Jeffery said.

    NSW Fire and Rescue Commissioner Greg Mullins presented the award to Station Officer Jeffery at a ceremony in Sydney last Friday.

    “Our employees put their lives on the line every day, so as an organisation, safety has to underpin everything we do,” Commissioner Mullins said.

    “The Commissioner’s Safety Awards program recognises FRNSW workers who make an outstanding contribution to improving or promoting safety within the workplace,” Commissioner Mulls said.

    Firefighters from the Orange station were recognised in various categories along with colleagues from places including Cabramatta, Cobar, and Blacktown.

    Station Officer Jeffery’s team identified more efficient ways of using electronics to exit and enter the station in Orange from the busy highway.

    The awards are self nominating and Orange had to vie for the award among scores of other stations across New South Wales who entered the Commissioner’s awards this year.
