Galston Rural Fire Brigade News

Horse rescue

Galston’s finest firies were called to assist with the rescue of a horse trapped in a local creek. Galston RFB worked with FRNSW brigades from Castle Hill and Blacktown, and a Horse Rescue expert from Hawkesbury SES. We provided extra hands and assistance pumping water. The horse was eventually pulled to safety. Great work by all involved!

Perfectly controlled pile burn

Galston RFB members recently helped with a controlled local pile burn. It was a great example of a well planned and executed burn.

Pile burns are helpful for property maintenance and to reduce bush fire fuels ahead of the official fire season in October. However, permits for pile burns are required all year-round. Please make sure you contact your appropriate council for advice on a permit. NSW RFS Fire Control and your neighbours must also be notified, and piles must adhere to the approved standards.

Two new Breathing Apparatus Operators

Congratulations to Galston RFB fire fighters Warren Ballinger and James Madry on passing the BAO course with flying colours. Galston is proud to add another two fully qualified and skilled Breathing Apparatus Operators to the ranks.
