Peter ConnGroup Captain Peter Warwick Conn joined the NSW Rural Fire Service as a volunteer firefighter with the Comobella Brigade in 1979. He has held the positions of Permit Officer, Training Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, Senior Deputy Captain and Captain within the brigade. Peter was also a very active member of the Wellington Training Committee and when it closed became a member of the Orana Training Group where he remains a very active and supportive member.
Peter was elected as a Group Captain in 2001 a position he still holds. As a senior volunteer he chairs the Captains and Group Captains meetings, is the Chairperson of the Senior Management Committee and is a member of the Orana Bushfire Management Committee. He was also instrumental in the teaming of the Dubbo, Narromine and Wellington Council’s Rural Fire Brigades to form the Orana Team.
Peter Conn is a community oriented senior volunteer who is also a team member prepared and very willing to work with, train and mentor all volunteers especially those with senior roles within the brigades and Orana Team. He is well known and respected by his peers in the Orana Senior Management Group and his advice and assistance is regularly sought by members of the group. He regularly volunteers his service above and beyond that expected of a Group Captain and is willing to assist with the Incident Management team with Incidents received over the Wellington call 000 system to which he responds.
Peter’s performance in all aspects of his role as Group Captain and as a volunteer is well above that expected. His devotion to duty, leadership, loyalty and unselfish performance of his role is beyond question. These along with the example he displays and the integrity he shows are deserving of the highest recognition.
