Training is the first and third Tuesday of the month
To join contact Maureen Bradley on 6445 1328
In order to join please note that there are minimum requirements:
The local area has potential for fast moving fires. The dry sandy soil, flammable vegetation and strong winds promote a high risk. It is classified by the Tasmanian Fire Service as bushfire prone.
Prepare and plan: Obtain and use the freely available information packages from The Tasmanian Fire Service (TFS).
Ensure that your house or RSD number is clearly visible from the roadside.
Clear vegetation around houses and on vacant blocks. The Sisters Beach Fire Brigade can give assistance. Contact WWC to report concerns about any properties not being cleared.
Be aware that in the event of fire, the electricity supply may be cut and so disable the household water pump.
Join the local Fire Brigade as a volunteer if you are able to do so.
IF A FIRE IS OBSERVED OUT OF CONTROL CALL 000 AND NOT YOUR LOCAL FIRE BRIGADE. THIS IS THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET ASSISTANCE.
Observe Fire Permit Periods and Total Fire Ban Periods as declared by the TFS.
Keep fires and barbeques at least three meters away from flammable materials.
Have enough water nearby to put the fire out.
Stay with the fire – is it unlawful to leave a fire before it is completely out.
Fires on the beach or in the dunes are prohibited at all times.
To obtain the latest updates on the situation of any bushfires, including in the Sisters Beach area, phone the TFS or visit their website.www.fire.tas.gov.au
