In these unprecedented, times the Beaconsfield Fire Brigade continues to operate following Covid-19 protocols to ensure we are able to respond to fire calls.
The brigade has attended 278 calls for the year 1/07/2019 to 30/06/2020.
This is down from 309 from the previous year and is Covid 19 related.
The brigade takes delivery of our new Forward Control Vehicle in October which is an auxiliary unit that is primarily used as a mobile support unit in major incidents such as bush fires or large structure fires.
The brigade would like to take this opportunity to thank local businesses and our generous community based supporters for their generous donations that have enabled the brigade to purchase and fit out this purpose built vehicle.
With the introduction of Fire Rescue Victoria the brigade continues to operate as a fully staffed and trained volunteer brigade providing a 24/7 service to our community and greater Victoria.
We have continued to meet and at times exceed our response time thus providing you, our community, with a first rate fire service.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind the community to stay safe and follow the instructions of the Chief Medical Officer so that we all may be able to return to a normal functioning community.
