CFA Info Night

The Maldon Fire Brigade played host to around 50 firefighters from several stations last Wednesday night.  

They were there to learn about two special-purpose vehicles that are housed at the Golden Square Fire Station: a field operations vehicle and a salvage vehicle that carries a rehabilitation unit.  After the information sessions, everyone shared a meal provided by Maldon Fire Brigade volunteers.   

Working Visas - Senate Enquiry

Bendigo Federal MP Lisa Chesters has welcomed the announcement that there will be a Senate Inquiry into the impact of Australia’s temporary work visa programs.  Ms Chesters said close scrutiny was long overdue. 

Ms Chesters expressed concern about the fact that in her own electorate local workers were missing out on jobs that were being filled by foreign workers on 457 holiday visas.
