of Australia agreed to become Patron of the Association.
Her Excellency has a prior history with FPA Australia, opening

role of Governor of Queensland. Growing up in Queensland, where
fire was a regular threat, meant that she was well aware of the
work of the fire protection services and the wider fire protection
FPA Australia is grateful for the Governor-General's support and
hopes to develop greater awareness of fire safety in the community
