Maude Fire Brigade


District Brigades regularly are turned out needlessly to private burnoffs which are not in danger of spreading. It is very important that landowners let Vicfire know when you are going to do some burning off. It can be very embarrassing to have fire trucks turn up needlessly – and very frustrating for the volunteers who have to give up their work or leisure time to man the trucks.


A simple phone call to Vicfire on phone 1800 668 511 will solve the problem – and it is free!

My humble apologies to the victim of my careless typing last month – the correct number to register burnoffs is the one above. In my haste I hit just one wrong key – but that is all it takes to give you a wrong number! Thanks to Brian for letting me know about my mistake.

Our next big day will be the Barbecue at the Back to Steiglitz on 23rd October. Let’s all hope for better weather than the recent Trash & Treasure day!

The next meeting of the Brigade Fundraising Sub-Committee will be held on Monday, 5th September, 2016 at 7.30 at the Fire Station, unless the need arises to meet sooner. Any interested local folk will be warmly welcomed.

There will be a Brigade meeting on Wednesday, 15th June at the Maude Tennis Pavilion
