Summary

Certificate awarded to Peter Auty for successfully completing Fireline Leadership training.

Peter's poem 'No More' combined with his many training certificates shows the difficulty for even highly trained fire-fighters to fight the Black Saturday fires, and highlights the effect that this unprecedented event had on the emergency services people involved.

Part of a collection that documents the life of Peter Auty, illustrating his colourful and interesting life, and why he was well loved by his community, recognized in the Victorian Parliament, and awarded two medals posthumously for the important role he played on and following Black Saturday. This collection forms part of the Victorian Bushfires Collection. This large and diverse collection was established following Black Saturday and includes a multi-disciplinary collection of artefacts, images and stories to record the experience and impact of bushfires across Victoria's landscape, ecology and history.
