And well done to the Kalamunda Bush Fire Brigade for keeping this award going. A fantastic Brigade and we appreciate the time and effort the members volunteer to protect not just Kalamunda but assisting the surrounding shires at times of need. Keep up the great work.

Jo Mallis Paul Markovic has it really been 19 years! Still can't listen to Land Down under without remembering Mark!! Taken way too soon. Never Forgotten

Time flies Pennie Stockdale Bazen. I have such fond memories which are as vivid as he was just here yesterday. He's sadly missed.

Thank you for all your sacrifices we are so grateful

I remember that day only too well. Very sad.πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯

πŸ’› Quinns Rocks

πŸ’› Quinns RocksA couple of days ago we were contacted by Zoe to see if her beautiful 7 year old daughter Izzy could come down and have a look at the Station. On talking to Zoe a bit more about Izzy, we found out that Izzy has Medulloblastoma (Brain Cancer). So rather than Izzy come to us, we went there. Izzy had a great time, went for a ride in the fire truck, squirted the hose and was given a Beanie and T shirt from the Brigade. The smiles from everyone made it a truly amazing experience. To Zoe, Izzy, Adam and the rest of your amazing friends and Family, On behalf of us all at Quinns Rocks BFB we wish you alll the very best for the Journey ahead. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done everyone!!!!..from one fellow disabled person, I thank you!!....I was very fortunate to have volunteered for a Comms brigade for 14 years and to have given back to the community is the greatest experience. For a person with a disability to have been amongst the truck and you all for that time, would have been great for the family....well done troops!!
