Joseph Bandiera

Where are they now?

Name at Nagle: Joseph Bandiera // Name now: // Graduating Year: 2001 // Nagle House: MacKillop

It was wonderful to read in the local paper on 12 July 2019 about Joseph's continuing passion as a volunteer firefighter. Joe has been a member of the Bairnsdale Fire Brigade and is currently a third lieutenant. He recently completed his Certificate III in Firefighting Operations, which is an uncommon qualification for a volunteer. Joe was quoted as saying "it pretty much brought together all the courses and training I've done over the years into one qualification." Joe has been praised by other firefights and development personnel for his achievements and positive attitude, making him a role model for anyone wanting to pursue a career as a fire fighter.

We congratulate Joe on this achievement and wish him well for his ongoing future as a volunteer fire fighter.
