Help Protect Your Community - Join Us!

Our brigade needs about 36 volunteers to function well. Currently we have only about 20 active members. We need enough volunteers so we can have relief teams in a major bushfire, otherwise our fire trucks will be out of action when crews can't stay on their feet any longer. Fresh crews will be much more effective and safe when fighting a major fire.

It's not just fighting bushfires - there are also structural fires and motor vehicle accidents. A house is lost in about five to ten minutes after the fire starts. We need fast response times to save people and property. It could be your house on fire, and the quality of your brigade's response will depend on the volunteers who are available at the time. Luckily, our pagers do not call us out to these fires often, but when they happen we need enough trained volunteers to make a safe crew (four or five). 

Volunteers may not be able to respond to the pager calls every time, due to family commitments, illness and work. If we have a broad base of volunteers, it's easier on everyone.

Based on Malua Bay's population growth and the number of homes being built adjacent to bushland in new estates, in the next 5 years the Malua Bay Fire Brigade will need to expand dramatically. We need volunteers now to start training so we can better look after our community into the future.

No prior experience is necessary, and it's free! The Rural Fire Service conducts nationally accredited fire training courses at Mogo, which we augment with our own brigade training. You'll receive your own comprehensive training manual, and a set of protective clothing, boots, gloves, helmet and goggles.

We welcome new members to join our friendly team.
