If you need information about a current fire or incident, please try these resources:


Please do not call the Wamboin Brigade Captain's mobile. In incidents, this number is used for logistical communications, (especially when radio networks are in marginal areas or congested) , organise crews and our initial and ongoing response. Calling it for general information can be disruptive to the operation of the brigade crews and allocated tasks.

For all permits and enquiries contact the Queanbeyan Fire Control Centre (QFCC) on (02) 6128 0600

Fire season started in the Lake George Zone on 1st October.  The following information is provided by the NSW Rural Fire Service - see the full article
A Fire Permit is required for burning activities during the Bush Fire Danger Period. Fire Permits help ensure fire is used safely and minimise the danger to you, your property and the community.
The key things to remember:
  • You need a fire permit if it's the Bush Fire Danger Period.
  • Just because it's the Bush Fire Danger Period doesn't mean you can't use fire - but there are restrictions to ensure fire is used safely.
  • Getting a permit is free and easy. Contact your local Fire Control Centre.
  • There are heavy penalties if you don't follow restrictions or rules.
Please note that other restrictions, approvals and/or permits may apply to council areas where the Bush Fire Danger Period has not been declared. For example, backyard burning is not permitted in many suburban areas due to Environmental Regulations and Council or Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) permission is required.
Check these guides for more information on permits and reducing hazards on your property:
Please be extra vigilant during the fire season.

The NSW Government has announced changes to the 40km/h road rule for vehicles passing stationary emergency vehicles.

Following a 12 month trial of the existing rule, a number of changes are being made.

From 26 September:
  • Drivers will no longer need to slow down to 40km/h on roads with speed limits of 90km/h or over.
  • Drivers will continue to be required to slow down to 40km/h on roads with speed limits of 80km/h or under.
  • The rule will be expanded to include tow trucks and breakdown assistance vehicles, which are displaying yellow flashing lights while stopped on the road.

On roads with speed limits of 90km/h or over, drivers will need to:
  • Slow to a speed which is safe and reasonable for the circumstances.
  • Give sufficient space between their vehicle and the breakdown assistance or emergency vehicle and workers.
  • On multi-lane roads, drivers must change lanes to keep the lane next to the vehile free if it is safe to do so.

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.
