Geoff Jones, who passed away early last November, was a long-time Fire Control Officer at Yallingup Rural and DCFCO for the City of Busselton for over a decade. He was an instrumental stalwart in getting Yallingup Rural “on the map”. He lobbied hard to acquire the first heavy truck for the Brigade and the Fire Shed, which we have now at Caves Rd. Geoff’s biggest feature was his character which left a huge impact and motivation on everyone that worked with him. With the agreement of Geoff’s wife Anne, a small ceremony was held for Geoff at the Fire Station on Caves Road where this simple memorial now stands. The event was attended by other FCOs, DFES crew and personnel from local brigades.
