A public meeting was held in November 1942 and the Sedgwick Bushfire Brigade was founded. Firefighting equipment consisted of a canvas beater per fire fighter and two rakes provided by the Forestry Commission.
The Brigade now houses two fire-fighting tankers, a lighting plant, and a quick fill pump, and is supported by 35 trained volunteer firefighters.
The Brigade not only attends fires and other emergencies on a local level: we have also participated in major fire events across Victoria, NSW and the ACT, and are increasingly involved in combined emergency services efforts such as flood relief.
We welcome new members to the Brigade and also to our Junior Brigade (which re-formed in 2013). If you would like further information, please get in touch the Brigade Captain or Secretary. Their contact details can be found by following this link >
