Maude Fire Brigade


Summer Fire Restrictions started on 9th November. It is illegal to burn without a permit until the Restrictions are lifted some time next autumn. Keep in touch with the media for Total Fire Ban days – we are in the Central Fire District.


The Brigade has attended more small fires recently, and thank those who have responded to the pager messages. All brigades are finding it harder to crew trucks during the day when most members are away, so the burden falls heavily on those whose jobs keep them in the area.

The Comms Officer is particularly grateful to those members who respond to pager messages promptly – it helps to know who is available!

The annual Christmas barbecue will be held at the Fire station on Saturday, December 12th at 6.30pm. This is always a great night, and a chance for newer members of the local community to meet more friends. A flyer has been delivered around the district. Please keep the date free and come along for a relaxed evening. There will be a Jumping Castle for the children, as well as the Reserve play area which is well lit. BYO drinks and chairs, and a salad and/or a sweet to share. Meat will be provided. We hope to see you there!

The next meeting of the Brigade Sub-Committee will be held on Monday, 22nd February 2016 at 7.30 at the Fire Station. Any interested local folk will be warmly welcomed.
