WINGELLO RFB - CAPTAIN'S FOREWORD
Welcome to Wingello Rural Fire Brigade's website.
Our website will provide you with the most up to date and relevant information about the Wingello Rural Fire Brigade and the area over which the brigade covers. The responsibility vested in the brigade is to provide a reliable and efficient emergency service to a level equal to and above the communities expectations. The brigade has established a 'vision' and 'mission' statement by which it maintains its direction.
To provide a professional and dedicated fire and emergency service to the residents of Wingello, the District of Wingecarribee and the State of New South Wales. The brigade will maintain this by Training, Team Building and Personal Development. To be leaders in Public Safety, through Community Education, Consultation and Mitigation.
Suppress or Mitigate all fires. To provide a Prompt, Reliable, Compassionate and Effective service to all persons who are in need. Assist in any emergency situation when required. To assist and educate any member of the community in how to protect themselves and what to do in the event of fire.
The brigade also maintains a strong Community Engagement presence. At the last Annual General Meeting 3 Community Engagement Officers were appointed who are responsible to the Captain to ensure that the NSW Rural Fire Service FireWise message is appropriately disseminated to the community.
I would strongly urge all property owners and residents to avail themselves of the winter months to ensure that preparations are in place before the start of the statutory bushfire season starting on the 1st October and to develop their 'Bushfire Survival Plan'. Copies of the plan can be downloaded from the NSW RFS website at www.rfs.nsw.gov.au or by contacting our brigade. Please refer to our contacts page.
