At the AGM of the North Arm Cove RFS, held on 4 th June, Neal Cook was unanimously re-elected as President and Captain of the Brigade. In summing up the year, he said that it had been a relatively quiet one; however the Brigade had been called to assist with fires outside its area such as Gloucester and Dungog, and had also been called on to carry out a rare duty of pumping storm water from people's basements after the heavy rain in March. He thanked all members for their contributions to the effectiveness of the Brigade.

This coming Saturday (given suitable conditions) the NAC RFS Brigade will be carrying out a hazard reduction burn from behind the Community Centre down towards Promontory way and Beauty Point. Several other Brigades will be assisting. Anyone who suffers distress from smoke should perhaps go out for the day, to avoid adverse reactions. This is the first in a series of HR's planned so hopefully the weather will stay kind.
