You guys are Heroes.....

Thankyou.

It has been a pretty huge last three days for the Brigade with our volunteers responding to nine fire calls, including a car and scrub fire, a burn off reignition, and seven illegal burns. We have also spent the whole weekend training our 2020 recruit school with 10 new firefighters doing their basic training and starting the long road to becoming firefighters. And we have done it all while maintaining strict physical distancing protocols. Great job Team!

The forecast fire danger for the next two days, Friday 10th April is VERY HIGH. The forecast for Saturday 11th of April is SEVERE. That means there is no burning of any kind allowed, including 1m piles. If you light a fire of any kind you will be fined, and there are no exemptions of any kind. Please dont risk it, as any fire that gets away will be difficult for us to stop, and more importantly, it means that Brigade volunteers have to break social distancing protocols to attend the station, get in a fire truck and come out and put your burn out, which puts us at greater risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19.
