In memory of CFS Deputy Group Officer Brian Johnston
DGO Johnston was fatally injured late afternoon on Tuesday 9th December 2014 following a collision between his stationery vehicle and an appliance responding to a fire near Rendelsham in the state's south-east.
Brian joined CFS in 1965 and served his community as a CFS volunteer for 49 years. He was a highly experienced officer and firefighter and a member of the Millicent brigade and was also a deputy group officer with the Wattle Range Group. He was an active and well respected member of CFS and the broader Millicent community.
Brian leaves behind his wife, adult aged children and grandchildren and our hearts, thoughts and condolences go out to his family at this sad time.
We thank Brian for his long and dedicated service to CFS and to protecting his community.
To all our firefighters, stay safe this fire season, and look after each other.
