Volunteer resigns after #RFS caters for cops at #CSG protest

A volunteer with the Rural Fire Service has resigned after the agency was told to provide catering support to a police command unit stationed at a coal seam gas protest.

The protest is taking place at Kyogle, 160km east of Tenterfield.

The RFS catering truck was requisitioned to provide food for local police and a Tactical Action Group at Metgasco’s CSG drilling site.

Don Durrant says he’s been am RFS volunteer for almost 30 years and this is not the sort of volunteer work he signed up to do.
