Fire Brigade

May 15, 2019 May 2019, Regular Features No Comments

With the recent “Boil Water” Notice from Council the Martinborough Brigade stepped up and ensured that flyer were in peoples letterboxes and public announcement were made over our appliance loud speakers. I was lovely to see so many of you thank us as we passed by on our mission – it’s just another way we are an integral part of your community’s response in a emergency.

Thank you for being so careful during the Fire Season, it has been great that we have avoided any major fires, and we hope you remembered to check your Smoke Alarms and have had your chimney swept.

If you have ever thought about how to give back to your community, we would love to hear from you. All the training you need, uniform is provided free and the camaraderie is the icing on the cake. We train on Tuesday nights so pop down for a visit, we would love to see you.

The last month has seen an equal spread of calls for assistance for Medical First Response, Motor Vehicle Crashes and Fire calls.

Please drive to the conditions as we move into late Autumn/early Winter and always wear your seatbelt
