Brigade offers online advice instead of open day

The Bays Rural Fire Brigade is offering individual online advice in place of its open day planned for last Saturday, September 19.

"This year, due to Covid-19, we will not be opening he fire station for Get Ready Weekend," said captain Mr Stephen O'Donoghue.

"We are disappointed we will not be able to have an opportunity to catch up with our local community.

"We are adapting to the challenges of the Covid-19 restrictions.

"For this year's Get Ready Weekend, we will be offering a personal 20-minute Zoom meeting for residents in our community to interact, ask questions or seek advice."

He said the sessions would be available through this week until Friday, September 25.

"If you would like to take part, email with a preferred time and we will be in touch to confirm and send you a link so that we can catch up."

Mr O'Donoghue said other resources were available through the Rural Fire Service website,, including information on how to prepare for the upcoming fire season.

"Now is a great time to put together your fire plan," he said.

"Last fire season we saw how the impact of fires can be devastating.

"We were fortunate not to be directly impacted in our area.

"My appreciation goes to the many brigades, including ours, that put in a magnificent effort to contain the Gospers Mountain fire and restrict the affected area to west of the M1.

"Overall, The Bays brigade had crews attending local and out of area fires from July to January, with over 800 on the fireground.

"We look forward to talking to you during the week and appreciate all the support our local community has given us over many years and particularly last fire season."
