Wamboin Rural Fire Brigade
The Wamboin Rural Fire Brigade has been in operation since 1984 and has around 70 active members. The brigade is part of the Lake George Fire Zone and attends incidents & supports emergency operations locally, regionally, and interstate. The Wamboin Fire Station (AKA The Wamboin Fireshed), has been the home of the brigade since 1988. The Brigade is fortunate to have a number of fire fighting appliances (Two Cat 1 & two Cat 7 tankers, One Cat 9 tanker, a PC and Quickfill). The brigade plays a significant role in protecting the local community and participates in many community events and activities. (more...)
Total Fire Bans and Fire Permits
In order to limit the number of fires that escape and threaten life, property and the environment, especially on days when it is very hot, dry and windy, the NSW RFS can restrict the use of fire through Fire Permits and Total Fire Bans.
