FCF Fire & Electrical – 68 Pty Ltd is a company that is proudly indigenous-female owned. With a background in Retail Management and Administration, working for FCF in a National Customer Support Role, has taught me a lot about the Fire Industry and the importance of ensuring that our clients are compliant and comply with all fire safety regulations.
Working as the National Customer Support for FCF, I have worked with our many Territory Managers to ensure that our National client’s sites are compliant and ensured that their works and servicing are carried out in a timely manner and to the highest standard. This role has given me the ability to create and maintain relationships with our National clients and I aim to establish more national and local relationships within the Canberra and surrounding areas.
As a proud young aboriginal woman, I aim to build a business that also supports my people in gaining employment within the fire industry. With the aid of the FCF group, I will be able to fulfil my dreams of operating a National business, which has the ability to employ in Metro and Regional areas. As my people, the Butchulla people are based regionally for thousands of years I feel connected to other regional areas.

Background of the Butchulla People:
The Butchulla people are the indigenous people and traditional owners of Fraser Island. There were six clans in the Butchulla Nation and their territory extended through Fraser Island, Double Island Point, Tin Can Bay, Bauple Mountain, and North to a point at Burrum Heads in Queensland.
The Butchulla have been living on Fraser Island (located near Hervey Bay, QLD) for the past 5000 Years and the island is known to us as K’gari, meaning “Paradise”. The Sea, the lakes and the forests supplied an abundance of food, so the island’s population was high. The island has a rich and ancient indigenous history
Because the Butchulla language did not come from a written culture, this nation has been referred to variously as: Butchulla, Badjala, Badjula, Badjela, Badjellah, Badtjala & Budjilla.
There is a Butchulla monument located in Hervey Bay that honours the Aboriginal Tribes from the Wide Bay Area. The bronze plaque sculptured by Phyl Hinwood, shows an Aboriginal elder telling stories of the dreamtime to children. The monument contains a dance circle containing hand-made concrete plinths decorated with seashells
