MP's tribute to
THE CFS Barossa Group's Con-
cordia brigade celebrated its 60th
anniversary last month.
More than 80 guests attended the oc-
casion at the Hewett Centre.
Among the guests were CFS chief offi-
cer Greg Nettleton, regional commander
for Region 2 John Hutchins and Minis-
ter for Emergency Services Tony Piccolo.
Also present were all five former cap-
tains of the brigade, including founda-
tion member Ray Teusner.
Current captain Steve Batson said he
had witnessed many changes to the bri-
gade since he joined 23 years ago.
"The brigade has witnessed a lot of
changes over the years, especially im-
provements to training PPC equipment
and appliances, with safety a major fac-
tor," he said.
"Changes have also brought about
preparing us to respond to the many and
varied emergencies other than fires that
have now become part of the CFS as an
Over the years crews from Concordia
have travelled widely to battle blazes, in-
cluding the Black Saturday fires in Vic-
toria in 2009 and the recent Eden Valley
fires in South Australia.
With a current brigade of 34 mem-
bers, Mr Batson said there was scope for
further growth in the future.
"We have maintained maximum num-
bers, we are well situated with member-
ship at the moment," he said.
"There is a chance that we could get
"The station is predominantly rural
but, with the urban fringes approach-
ing on our patch and the future of the
Concordia area, we may have to look at
expanding to deal with the
increase in demand."
A commemorative plaque
was presented to Mr Batson
as part of the celebrations,
while 10-year service medals
were presented to Nick Ge-
hlert, Diane Borgo, Andrea
Finlaey and Steve Bromley.
The Concordia brigade
was first established on Janu-
ary 14, 1954, when several
local farmers gathered to-
gether to form the 'Concor-
dia District Communal Fire
In 1965 the brigade joined
the EFS, attending many in-
cidents local and statewide,
and in 1994 relocated to a
new shed built on the Barossa

MEMBER for Schubert
Stephan Knoll paid trib-
ute to Freeling resident
Robyn Muster, who was
recently taken by cancer, in
parliament last month.
Born in 1955, Mrs Muster at-
tended the local primary school
in her childhood and later Im-
manuel College in the city.
"Whilst she travelled on occa-
sions far away from Freeling, it was her home for most
of her life, and she was homesick whenever she left
Freeling for too long," Mr Knoll said.
Mrs Muster was the first woman to study agriculture
at Immanuel College, a trend, Mr Knoll said, she con-
tinued to set throughout her life.
In 1997 she became the first female councillor of the
Royal Adelaide Show society, where she represented
the grain and fodder section for 17 years, and the first
woman elected to the Royal Adelaide Show society's
"Women in agriculture was a constant theme for
Robyn, building upon the beliefs and the strong en-
couragement of her parents, Colin and Joy Lienert,
who were very well-known and well-awarded Berkshire
pork breeders in the region," he said.
After completing her studies, she worked at the
wheat research/plant breeding program at Roseworthy
College and was later promoted to technical officer, a
position she held for 15 years.
Marrying Barry Muster in 1981, the pair had two
children, Travis and Kelly.
Mrs Muster was dedicated to the local community,
volunteering at the local op shop, the Freeling Primary
School council and Faith Lutheran College council.
She was also a member of the Liberal Party and was named
Light Regional Council's citizen of the year in 2003.
"Robyn was taken by the scourge of cancer, but she
and her family refused to let her illness, which was pres-
ent for such a short time at the end of her life, de-
termine her legacy to the community that she held so
dear," Mr Knoll said.
