Brigade News

2nd December 2018

 
Light Up The Oaks - we had a very exhausting but benefical Light Up The Oaks community event on Saturday. Thanks to all those who attended :- Colin, Robert, Erik, Thomas, Peter Z, Deb, Steven L, Steven P and Jeremy.
 
Christmas Party - will be at Camden Sports Club, we are booked to Bare-foot bowls. Finger food will be provided. Bowls starts at 1830hrs, but lets be there for 1800hrs for a warm up bevy. 
 
Santa Run - is planned for the 15th December. Start time is around 1400hrs. We'll need as many Santa's little helpers as possible.
 
Availability - again a reminder, please update your availablity on BART regularily/weekly. We are considered a reliable brigade to provide crews, so it would be helpful to know who is able and about. Please respond to SMS's or emails or Bart 'discussion' calls - I know most do, but not all. Even a simple 'yes' or 'no' would be sufficient. 

Call Outs - Well it has been a constant run of calls, although it seems kind of slow. So far we have already hit the long term average of 53 in a 6 month. Now we are in November we are up to 56 and summer has yet to kick in.See below for stats
 
BART - could you all try and use Bart for letting us know if you are attending a call please simply press eitheror that gives the team who are getting to or already at the station an understanding if else is coming. Please try and use Bart for identifying your availability.

Maintanence - December is Jason & Alan
 

Fire Permits Remain CANCELLED - There is no change to the current status of the fire permits. They remain cancelled even given the recent rain. The official commentary is they are calling this a 'Green drought' which from experience on our property is pretty accurate.
