Sue Sheldrick

When Sue joined the CFA in 1983, women had few options and were offered a place on the ladies auxiliary and prepared food for the men on the frontline, working the radio and brigade fundraising.  A self-proclaimed bad cook, she still joined anyway, wanting to be part of a respected organisation with the Ash Wednesday fires that threatened her sister’s family in Upper Beaconsfield a major prompter.  That was 1983, and when the fires had eased she became part of CFA. Over the years, being part of 5 different fire brigades.

In 1995, a few years after making the “tree change” from Melbourne to Killawarra, Sue was unanimously elected the first female captain of a CFA brigade, a role she would hold for 6 years.  She recalls the controversy over the appointment, but driven by her commitment to environment and community, over time has (mostly) silenced the critics.

In 2016 she was awarded a CFA Life Membership, and now 35 years since joining, continues to be a part of the CFA at the South Wangaratta brigade, works in all hazards (fire, flood etc) Incident Management roles providing warnings to the community and is a full time community educator with the SES for North East Victoria.
