Finley-based Berrigan Shire Councillor Daryll Morris will become the council’s delegate on the Federation Zone Bush Fire Management Committee.
The committee comprises representatives of the Berrigan Shire, Federation and Albury councils who meet quarterly.
As a former NSW Rural Fire Service volunteer, Cr Morris said the new role was a good fit.
‘‘The main aim of the management committee is to agree on fire plans and support each other so that all stations in the zone are similar and equipped with the latest technology.
‘‘Council puts money towards fire management every year.’’
The position was previously held by Cr Bernard Curtin. Cr John Bruce is Cr Morris’s alternate on the committee.
