Senior fire brigades ready for state championships | Photos

FOUR Wimmera teams are competing in the senior urban state championships this weekend in Bendigo. 

The volunteer firefighters from St Arnaud, Horsham, Warracknabeal and Stawell are set to compete over three days.

Horsham fire brigade’s David Hornsby said he expected a tough competition.

“We are competing in B-section so that puts the pressure on us,” he said. 

Mr Hornsby said the Horsham team would compete in the same division as the Warracknabeal team who were in good form.

He said the Horsham team was training two nights a week to prepare for the state championships.

“We have new members on our team this year, but we should have a good chance,” he said.
