How Heroic Volunteers Inspired a Future Firefighter


Ross Melville joined the Strathalbyn CFS as a teenager in 2017 after he and his sister were saved after a serious car crash in Victor Harbor.

Now 19, Ross has learned a lot growing up while a part of the community organisation, including protecting communities from recent major bushfires. 

He joins Jennie Lenman this 'Thank a First Responder Day' to share his story.
