Open day to celebrate brigade’s 100th birthday

THE Wynyard Fire Brigade is inviting the public to celebrate its 100th birthday by opening the station’s doors to the public.

The station will be open on Saturday, July 26, from 10am until 3pm for visitors to walk around and get an insight into what it’s like to be a firefighter.

Visitors will be able to inspect vintage fire trucks, old equipment and uniform displays, and talk to members of all the fire brigades in the district.

Wynyard Fire Brigade chief Bruce Corbett said the brigades will conduct a street parade and perform firefighting displays.

“It’s a great opportunity to see what we’ve got and what we do,” he said.

“Everyone knows there’s a fire brigade, but it provides a special insight into the equipment we use, our training and the work we do.”

Mr Corbett said a common misconception is that the fire brigade only attends fire call-outs.

“Fires are our least common type of call-outs,” he said.

“We attend alarms, motor vehicle accidents, assist ambulances and conduct pet rescues.”

Mr Corbett said he hoped for up to 400 people to attend the open day and urged any potential members to head along and find out more about the fire brigade.
