Glenorie Rural Fire Brigade News

Winter Is Upon Us

The weather is starting to get colder and it is important that you clean your chimney every year. Soot can build up in the flue and cause a fire in the chimney itself. Remember in case of fire, call Triple Zero “000”.

Planned Fuel Management Burns

Each year, only a small window of opportunity exists where weather conditions are favourable to conduct controlled burns. We have now reached that time, and aim to complete several burns across Glenorie and the surrounding areas prior to the next Bush Fire Season.

These burns are designed to help reduce the intensity of fire and will hopefully help to protect homes and property in our area, but do not mean there will be no fires.

For further information on Fuel Management Burning occurring throughout the area, please visit the RFS web site: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au

CSF Course

With a new Community Engagement team coming on board, our three new team members attended the Community Safety Facilitator (CSF) course at the end of April. We learnt new skills to facilitate community engagement events.

Wear a bicycle helmet

In May, we were called to a road accident. A cyclist had come off his push bike and injured himself. While he had some cuts and bruises, thanks to his helmet he has no serious injuries. Wearing a helmet when cycling is for your own safety, so please ensure you and your family always wear a bike helmet and follow the road rules.

For further information go to www.rfs.nsw.gov.au or contact the Brigade: Station; Phone: 9652 2017 (leave a message and someone will get back to you) or talk to a real person, James: 0422 168 914. Visit the brigade stand at the Glenorie Growers Market on the fourth Sunday of the month in the grounds of Glenorie RSL. Facebook: Glenorie Rural Fire Brigade; Email: [email protected]
