WANDONG FIRE BRIGADE  

 

 

 

Fundraising

While our fundraising efforts have been minimal over the past 18 months or so due to covid restrictions, we remain grateful to our community for all the support we receive in other ways. Our brigade is 100% volunteer, and we love engaging and being involved in our local community. We are hoping in the coming months we can get back out there and do some fundraising and local events. Stay tuned for more to come!

Big Thanks to Atlas Waste & Recycling Management for donating a skip bin to us to help with our big clean up. The clean up and brigade lunch usually happens just before the fire season, but had to be postponed due to restrictions. Was great to be able to get together, and to get the station and grounds back on track.

Fire Equipment Maintenance

Wandong Fire Brigade provide servicing and supply of fire suppression equipment (fire extinguishers and fire blankets etc). This is a main fundraiser for the brigade by our awesome volunteers, while providing essential equipment and servicing of the equipment to businesses and homes in the community. If you need any equipment or servicing contact John Simpson on 0421 319 203.

Storm Damage and Preparing your Property

There was quite a lot of damage around the area in the recent storms. Be aware of the potential for tree limbs and whole trees to drop over the coming weeks. Look Up! In preparation for the coming fire season, watch the Mitchell Shire Facebook page or website for announcements on green waste disposal.

NEW No Standing signs

Be aware that the Mitchell Shire Council have installed NO Standing signs either side of the driveway to the fire station, and have issued fines to people parking there. Wandong Fire Station is an emergency service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Access to the station is required at all times for members to enter, and for emergency vehicles to leave and return. Please do not park your vehicle on the grounds of the fire station, or park across the driveway, or block access to the driveway with your vehicle.
