Brigade News

 11 September 19


General News - Get Ready/Open Day is this coming weekend, so we really will need all hands on deck. This has been advertised greatly both on Facebook and posters in the shops and even the school putting up on their electronic notice board. So there is a potential for a greater number of visitors than previous years. The following Saturday there is an Emercengy Services Expo in Picton, we have been asked to attend to help do demo's for gas attack, again your help would be greatly appreciated.
Out of Area calls to Northern NSW continue as well as to Qld. We know it's hard with famil and work committments, but if you are able to help that would be great. As mentioned at the July General Meeting this has the very big potential to be a difficult fire season. It appears to be living up to expectations.
Call Out attendance and Brigade stats have been updated in the tabs above. These are done to the best of my knowledge, if you haven't signed the book or told me about a course you've done it hasn't been acknowledge and could impact your 'currancey' status.
Availability - again a reminder, please update your availablity on BART regularily/weekly. As we've noted before, we are again 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 - We've been a little busy of late. Since the last update (8 July) we've had 31 Call Outs. 81 so far for 2019 Calendar year. 50 for the Brigade year, so far. 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 - We have a new maintenance roster - see Our Brigade for the latest verion. September is Jason & Alan
