Here’s what one new re­cruit has to say:

Why Join the Glenorie Ru­ral Fire Brigade?

I de­cided to join Glenorie Brigade last year (fi­nally – bet­ter late than never!)

I was in­spired to join by my mem­ory of the amaz­ing work of the Brigade pro­tect­ing our com­mu­nity dur­ing the 2002 fires and have been im­pressed by Glenorie Brigade’s ob­vi­ous com­mit­ment to our com­mu­nity.

Since join­ing, I have found: - The Brigade gen­uinely wel­comes new mem­bers: new­com­ers are made to feel in­cluded in the team; - Each of us is on the look­out for the safety of our col­leagues and peo­ple in the com­mu­nity; com­mit­ment to per­sonal safety is strong; - All Brigade mem­bers are com­mit­ted to teach­ing the re­quired skills and pass­ing on the ben­e­fit of their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence in a sup­port­ive way; - One is only ex­pected to do what one feels ca­pa­ble and com­fort­able in do­ing; all Brigade mem­bers un­der­stand that some peo­ple are able to do more than oth­ers – that is not an is­sue; - In stress­ful times, the Brigade mem­bers are there to

sup­port and as­sist as re­quired; - Com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity is strong, whether it’s as­sist­ing a res­i­dent with ad­vice about prop­erty pro­tec­tion, con­duct­ing a pile burn, or be­ing at a com­mu­nity event, the Brigade is happy to oblige. They are also happy to travel to all parts of NSW and Aus­tralia to as­sist oth­ers in need; - All re­quired per­sonal pro­tec­tive cloth­ing & equip­ment is

sup­plied.

The Brigade gets to­gether at the Fire Sta­tion 2658 Old North­ern Rd (just past the Les Shore Oval) ev­ery Satur­day at 2pm and Mon­day night at 8pm.

Please join me in a great team which has a strong sense of com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity and an in­ter­est in help­ing oth­ers. I en­cour­age you to come along, check us out. You will be made to feel very wel­come within the fire­fight­ing fam­ily of 40 in Glenorie, over 600 in The Hills Dis­trict, 70,000 in NSW and mil­lions world­wide.
