Andrew Kaye

Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service

Andrew is Deputy Captain of his Brigade and has experienced firsthand a number of significant local fires;  and has also been deployed both intrastate and interstate as fire fighter and as part of an Incident Management Team.  Andrew’s passion lies in community engagement - he is also the Community Engagement Coordinator for Blue Mountains District.  His responsibilities include:  overseeing the Hazard Reduction program for the BM;  assisting, guiding and mentoring volunteer community engagers within brigades;  and presenting information to key community groups across the BM.  He believes that an informed and connected community is a resilient one and a resilient community has a greater opportunity to make the right decisions during a crisis;  and, more importantly, to recover more quickly post an event.
