Congratulations Marburg Firies

On the weekend of 6th/7th August, the Marburg Firies went to the State Championships in Townsville.

Out of 21 Queensland teams, Marburg came 2nd overall.  This has given them an automatic entry into the Australasian Championships which occur every two years, and will take place in Port Macquarie 2011.

Four Marburg firefighters braved the elements to achieve this impressive result.  They competed in a range of gruelling assessment tasks before a large crowd on The Strand in Townsville with a team consisting of Brad Dance, Nick Doyle, Glen Looker and Steve Foote. Brad said he was very proud of the team and the way they have improved their skills since the Regional Championships in Gatton earlier this year.
