In the community – Maiden Gully Fire Brigade

“The Building a Healthier Community Program helps us to create a Safer Community,” says Maiden Gully Fire Brigade Captain, David Mustey. “The very significant contribution that this Program provides us annually is being used to purchase new equipment such as tablets in our big Tanker and in the Pumper. This exciting innovation will give us ready access to maps, directions to the incident, where the nearest fire plug is along with operational pre-plans.”

Twenty years ago, the CFA formed a new fire brigade to serve the growth area of Maiden Gully. Maiden Gully Fire Brigade began with minimal equipment and an obsolete tanker kept in a carport. Today, it operates four appliances from a large, attractive fire station in Beckhams Road and responds to around 60 incidents annually. This has only been achieved through the dedication of the Brigade’s members and strong community support.
