It is with mixed emotions that we bid farewell to Astrid Wright, former director of East Rand Fire who will be emigrating to America .
Astrid has been a longstanding, executive committee member of FFETA since 2005 and was elected vice chairperson in 2007.
Astrid is one of the few female registered competent persons in the country and is a respected member of the fire industry. Astrid has also served on the SAQCC executive committee for a number of years.
Words are inadequate to express our gratefulness and appreciation of the incomparable work performance and attitude she has displayed during her tenure with our organization. Saying goodbye is never easy, especially to someone who has been such a valued team member. On behalf of FFETA and its members, we wish you all the best now and in the future and a great thank you for your contribution towards the fire industry.
FFETA held a farewell function for Astrid after the last FFETA meeting in April and some of the pictures of the event are attached. She was presented with a very special FFETA crystal as well as a small gift to remember us by.
