Good Friday Appeal Wandong Fire Brigade were happy to be out collecting money for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal this year. We were delighted to raise $8,481.30. Thanks to everyone who drove, rode or walked through or donated via our virtual tin.

Chimney Health To reduce the risk of fire starting from your fireplace or wood heater you should: • Use a torch to check for creosote build-up or obstructions • Have your chimney professionally cleaned annually • Only burn dry, clean wood • Extinguish your fire before going to bed or leaving the house. People should also have gas heaters inspected and serviced every two years to protect loved ones from carbon monoxide poisoning or fire.

New Recruits Wandong Fire Brigade recently hosted the assessments for some new firefighters, with exercises held at the LB Davern Reserve. Great to finally be able to get some new recruits trained and on the trucks.
