MARCH 2020 

WANDONG FIRE BRIGADE  

 

Despite the recent rain, the fire season is not yet over. Fire restrictions remain in place, and at this stage will remain in place until May 1st 2020. This means you cannot light a fire in the open air unless you have a permit or comply with certain requirements. If you don't obtain a permit, you could be breaking the law and may be prosecuted.

 

Wandong Fire Brigade Fundraising

 

Wandong Fire Brigade volunteers will be tin rattling at the Wallan South Bound BP on the Hume on the March long weekend. Come say Hi if you are passing by!

 

Wandong Fire Brigade will be recruiting new firefighters!

 

Wandong Fire Brigade is a 100% volunteer brigade made up of people living in the Wandong / Heathcote Junction area. We are currently looking for new people to join the brigade and train as firefighters.

 

All training is provided, and is nationally accredited. There is no financial expense to volunteers, just your time and commitment. Uniforms are provided and it is a great way to meet new people and form friendships, develop new skills and have greater involvement in your local community. We have both day and night training sessions.

 

Active members also have the opportunity to gain valuable transferable qualifications including first aid certificates and truck licenses.
