FEBRUARY 2021

WANDONG FIRE BRIGADE  

 

 

 

As you will be aware, 2020 caused everyone to have to reconsider their plans, and this was no different for us. We had to put all our fundraising efforts on hold, but we are now gearing up to raise much needed funds for our 100% volunteer brigade. If all goes well, you will see us at BP Wallan South Bound sometime soon, and we hope to get a Trivia Night up and running again later in the year. We greatly appreciate all the donations we receive, and we hope to be up about fundraising for our wonderful brigade very soon.

2020/2021 Fire Season

This fire season has been relatively quiet so far with the brigade attending a few smaller incidents. Even though we have been lucky and there have been times of rain the possibility of fires is still present. February historically is a busy month and it is common to still be attending fires into March and April.

Fire Information in an Emergency

During an emergency, Wandong Fire Brigade is not always able to update their facebook page immediately as our admin are all volunteer firefighters, and their priority is to attend to the incident. Updates will be made as soon as practicable.
