Volunteer

The brigade is 100% volunteer. Responding to emergencies and running the brigade is undertaken by people in the local community in their own time.  People just like you!

Our firefighters are on-call 24/7, and are responded to emergencies via pagers issued to them.  Given the nature of the community, we are always looking for people that can respond during week-days when many of us are at work.  But we are happy to welcome anyone that is willing to volunteer.

Once you have completed your membership forms and requisite police checks, you will complete "minimum skills" training before you are deemed operational and able to turn-out with the brigade.  The training takes approximately 3 months, usually one night per week and a few Sundays for practical skills.  There may be a delay before a course commences while we wait for sufficient numbers across our neighbouring brigades to start.

Once trained, you will be expected to attend "roster" one Sunday morning per month or our mid-week roster on the second Thursday morning.  You are also expected to attend skills maintenance and brigade general meetings on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.

After minimum skills, further training is available in core fighting skills such as use of Class A foam and chain saws, supporting skills such as first aid, and leadership skills such as crew leader.

Auxiliary

The brigade is strongly supported by our Auxiliary.  Traditionally the "Ladies Auxiliary", this important group supports the main brigade through catering and provision of supplies to firefighters on the fireground, through to fund raising.  This is an excellent group to join if you wish to contribute but may not want to be a firefighter.

Juniors

The brigade runs a Juniors program for children of 11 to 15 years.  The Juniors meet twice per month and participate in a range of activities that provide core skills for later moving to the senior CFA ranks, and have a lot of fun while doing so. 

Teenagers of 16 years and above are eligible to join CFA as a firefighter.
