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
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.
