Passed my FM1 assessment
I am really tickled pink with this as quite frankly, a year ago I would not have thought this possible.
As we all know everyone needs to be worthwhile to the human race and now I can honestly say I AM!
FM1 stands for fire management one. You must have this if you are to be of any use in bush fires, far too common in Australia I can tell you.
Not only did I pass my assessment, I attended my first "real fire" yesterday. It was in the forestry and huge. Had four dozers operating trying to put in fire breaks plus five brigades.
Not only do I have SA but I am female and nearing 60 BUT I CAN DO IT.
I do have this site to thank for this wonderful progress and all you mob who contribute all your thoughts so none of us feel alone.
