The Rural Fire Service (RFS) have been putting in long hours as fires have raged not only locally but throughout the state. With an ageing volunteer base they are looking increase their volunteer numbers with a variety of people and the skills they can bring to the RFS.

Byron Bay Rural Fire Brigade (BBRFB) is calling for people in their area to come along and find out what it means to join up and get involved.

‘What the rural fire brigades need, more than anything else, is people to join up,’ said BBRFB Captain Doug Rowley.

Mr Rowley said there are a wide range of roles that people can fill in the brigades from catering to being on the front line.

Information sessions

Two information sessions about how to join the RFS are being run at the BBFB for anyone thinking about joining up. The sessions will run on Friday 13 at 4pm and Tuesday, December 17 at 6pm at the BB fire station, Gaggin Park, Alcorn Street, Suffolk Park.

For more information call Byron Bay Fire Brigade Captain Doug Rowley on 0418 253 30
