Training on Tuesday evening will be in two parts. Initially we will be outside practicing basic skills, and later we will work through a desk-top scenario to refresh our knowledge of navigation, fire weather, fire behavior, fire suppression methods, communication and incident management.


You'll need your PPE and your fire fighter's pocket book. You're welcome to bring along any portable electronic devices and firefighting apps that you use (or you are thinking of using) on the fire ground.

Looking froward to seeing you at the station at 7:30pm.

A fantastic, cross-brigade and cross-agency training session was set up by our Training Officer on Saturday at a local holiday village.  Crews and appliances attended from Bungendore, Sutton and Wamboin brigades, as well as paramedics and some local "actors" to add a little realism.  Check out the photo gallery to get a feel for what happened. 
Thanks to all crew who attended, the Capital Country Holiday Park for their support and to the volunteer "victims" for the great parts they played.
