Moe Kelly was presented with his 50 year medal by UFBA Past President Graeme Booth at New Plymouth Fire Brigade on 13 September 2014..
Moe joined the fire service as a messenger at 16 years old and has worked his way up taking on the following roles: Station Officer at Stratford, Senior Firefighter at New Plymouth, Station Officer then Senior Station Officer at Wellington, Volunteer Support Officer at Taranaki, Acting Chief Fire Officer at New Plymouth, returning to a Volunteer Support Officer role at Taranaki.
Looking back on his career, Moe says there have been many highlights:
“Working with a great group of people throughout the country (both volunteer and career) and also competing against some very fine men in Waterway Challenges ‘in the good old days’.”
“Now as a VSO - assisting volunteers with their day-to-day requirements and being able to offer them my experience, thoughts and assistance as required.”
