Newstead Tanker 2
It's finally happened. After a longer than usual wait (thanks COVID), Newstead Brigade has a new, Brigade owned tanker. It is online and ready to respond whenever you need us. This new tanker was purchased through VESEP grant process and Brigade contribution. We would like to thank the Brigade Auxiliary for all their hard work and devotion to our Brigade. Without them this truck wouldn't be here. Also, to you, our community. We are still amazed by your generosity and your donations have also contributed to make this purchase possible. This new tanker belongs to you and is here to serve you.
Brigade Members Training
Brigade members have been training on the operation of our new Tanker 2 and other appliances for the up coming fire season pictured we have members participating in the operation of our equipment at our last training day.
Brigade Burning off
The Newstead fire brigade supported our local farmers in burning off bull rushs on a local property so the area could be managed better.
Kitchen Prop Training
10 Members attended the Kitchen prop training at the Castlemaine Fire Station on Wed 19th May. Thanks to Jason for running the prop and Hilton for his demonstration of the Cleveland load hose lay that we have on T1 and running through the pumping operation while connected to the Hydrant. A good nights training on the kitchen prop that is a new addition to the training props.
