Former prime minister Tony Abbott has resumed his duties as a volunteer fire fighter, helping out his local brigade on a Sunday afternoon.I have to appreciate him staying involved outside of the world of politics. He previously received a "a 10-year service award from the NSW Rural Fire Service."
Mr Abbott took part in the training day with the Davidson Fire Brigade ahead of the the upcoming fire season and posted a photo to his Facebook page captioned "Glad to be back with the crew".
In October 2013, during his first month as Prime Minister, Mr Abbott worked a night shift with Davidson Brigade, helping with a back burning operation near Bilpin.
"In the central portion of the great North American Continent there lies an arid and repulsive desert, which for many a long year served as a barrier against the advance of civilization. From the Sierra Nevada to Nebraska, and from the Yellowstone River in the north to the Colorado upon the south, is a region of desolation and silence." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet
