Review 2018 (Jan 2019)

2018 Busiest Calendar Year 
In 2018 we were called out 96 times, to all manner of incident. This is the busiest year on brigage record. This equates to a call out every 3.8 days. THANK YOU to everyone for your attendance at these incidents. A lot of the 'growing/new' community members out ther don't realise we are volunteers, especially as our committment and dedication to the community has not limits or 'down-time'. Your professionlism speaks volumes.  Sadly the end of the year saw a series of Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA's) accumulating in 6 in 8 days. Although there were some serious injuries thankfully there were no fatalities.
Light Up The Oaks - went well, thanks to everyone for their assistance. More helpers would have been nice, but all up it went very well.
Christmas Party - was washed out due to the down pour that resulted in flooding of the area. As this had been looked forward to by many we will attempt to do this again in 2019. For those that had a few too many of the 'silly juice', hope the morning was not to overwhelming.
Santa Run - not as successful as previous years. We will try and adviertise this better in 2019
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 - We continue to be call out on a regular basis. To date for the Brigade year we are up to 75 call outs. See stats below
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 Jeremy & Steven L

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.
