Our volunteers are here when you need us, but you can play a part as well.
Here’s three things that you can do to help us to help you.
1. The most important thing is to Prepare, Act and Survive. When a bushfire, structure fire or major storm damage occurs, you rarely get much warning. Preparing our families and homes, and then knowing when and how to act in an emergency situation can be the difference between life and death.
Give yourself the best chance to survive an emergency. Visit www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/plan-and-prepare to find out more.
2. Donate: If you are able, make a donation to our brigade or support us at local events like the Robertson Show. We raise funds for pieces of equipment that increase our efficiency and effectiveness in our operations, as well as for upgrades to our station that help to recruit and retain volunteers. We greatly appreciate donations both small and large.
3. Volunteer: We have members from all walks of life, male and female, young and old. It would be great to have you join us. Once applications for membership have been accepted through our local brigade and State RFS Headquarters, training will be provided. We meet each Wednesday night for a couple of hours, respond to callouts, and take part in community engagement activities and events.
We understand that our members are volunteers, and so there are no rules about how often you need to attend. If there are times where you have other commitments, family responsibilities, or are going away for an extended period that won’t cause any problems. It’s helps the brigade to have members that are available at different times of the day and week.
For more information pop in to the station at the top of the hill above the service station on a Wednesday night at 7:30pm, or contact us through facebook or email. You can download application information from the RFS website at www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/volunteer
