It's thanks to community support we've been able to purchase a number of pieces of equipment that enhance firefighter safety, enable us to act more effectively and directly enhance our ability to provide fire protection.  We rely on community donations to make this happen and always have new projects we are working on.

Make a Tax Deductible Donation

Thanks to the kind donation from EstateRealty Palerang (pictured above). Read about what their contribution will bring here.

Power Hose Reels

Thanks to generous donations from Holcim and the Bungendore Community Bank the brigade was able to purchase two powered hose reels. They are possibly the most loved bit of equipment in the station, dramatically reducing firefighter fatigue and risk of injury. These reels allow us to quickly relocate without needing to manually wind over 50m of heavy plastic hose.

 

Catering Trailer

Again the Bungendore Community Bank  made a generous donation to the Brigade to get us over the line on purchasing a custom catering trailer. This has allowed us to feed our people on the fireground, drastically reduced the time spent travelling for meals whilst at incidents - assisting both firefighting efforts and morale!!

Helmets

The Brigade funds a program to allow members to replace the standard service issued helmets with Kevlar Bushrangers from Pacific Helmets. These are not only much more comfortable for extended use but feature three point harnesses, a heat resistant visor, mounted smoke goggles and torch brackets. These features significantly enhance firefighter safety and comfort.

Fire Education Visits


Fire prevention and safety is an important lesson to learn

We regularly visit schools and kids groups to talk about what to do in case of fire and other emergencies. Our talks can cover a range of topics, tailored for any age group, including:

  • Fire in the Home - "Stop Drop and Roll" & "Get Down Low & Go Go Go"
  • Meet a Fireman - Aimed at young kids so they can get used to us in all our gear
  •  Bushfire - Fire Season, Preparations and What to do when it happens
  • Kitchens and Cooking
  • Car Accident Safety (P-Platers and Upward) 

If you have anything else you'd like to hear about, let us know! Our training and community education team can come up with just about anything!

 

Assistance for your Event


Assistance for your Event


The Bungendore Brigade helps out other local groups by providing various services including assistance with parking, water transport and fire protection!

This year we have controlled parking at the country muster, provided fire and emergency advice to the Kowen Cycling event and regularly fill the steam train that pulls into the village. 

 If you're planning something big please let us know so we can either assist or have plans in place in the event of an emergency.
