Jen Armitage - Harvey Brunswick Leschenault, Harvey
Play • 9 min

Welcome to the Unpaid Professionals, a fortnightly podcast where we will be sharing the real stories of the different members of the 566+ Western Australian Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades with you and delving into what it is that drives them to volunteer and what it's really like behind the scenes.

This week, we share an special bonus interview with Jen Armitage, who was the President of the Harvey Brunswick Leschenault Football club, in the Shire of Harvey at the time of the Waroona-Yarloop fires that begun on the 6th of January, 2016. 

Jen, like many other volunteers was volunteering behind the front line to help keep everything going behind the scenes while the volunteers on the front line were out fighting the fires, her story is one of many.
