Our Members don’t only “put the wet stuff on the hot stuff”.  They also act in a proactive manner to prevent fires and other emergencies.

In the past year we have been involved in the following safety and awareness initiatives:

  • work with Mount Barker Community College for their annual “Mud-run”.
  • carried out controlled burns on a number of bush blocks around town.
  • participated in the Plantagenet Shire Local Emergency Management Committee.
  • provided fire and rescue support to the local Speedway.
  • work with local schools, kindy etc to provide fire safety education with an “Open Station” week.  (“Emergency Services Week”)
  • maintain hydrants around Mount Barker.
