TweetFacebookBVSC Cr Sharon Tapscott welcomes competitors to BegaTwenty-two teams from across NSW as well as some visiting teams from Victoria were in Bega to take part over two days, putting their firefighting skills to the test in a competitive environment.

Assistant Commissioner McNeil, who is also the championships director,told the Bega District News it came down to “the four C’s” –competency, capability, commitment and credibility.

He said firefighters can know what to do with their skills and gear, but when pressure is on and lives are at stake, accuracy and safety is critical.

“In a competitive environment, everyone feels the pressure, you’re on display,” he said.

“These are real skills andall very aligned with what we do on the fireground.

“And it’s a way of refining those skills you can’t usually do unless you have a realemergency when lives are at stake.”

“So when we come together for state disasters –like the recent floods at Lismore –they’re like a hand in glove, all working together.

“I’m very proud of what they do. They have all come here in their own time and on their own dollar just to compete –and have fun!”
