The Stoney Creek Rural Fire Brigade is a Volunteer brigade of the NSW Rural Fire Service.
The Brigade Stoney Creek Brigade is one of over 20 Volunteer Rural Fire Brigades in the Lake George Zone of the NSW Rural Fire Service. This Zone incorporates brigades from Queanbeyan City Council and the Palerang Shire. Our neighbouring rural Brigades are Captains Flat, Hoskinstown-Rossi, Ridgeway, Queanbeyan, Burra and Bungendore.
Where are we? Stoney Creek operates out of the fire station attached to the Community Hall at Gathering Place, off Douglas Close, approximately 10km down Captains Flat Road from Queanbeyan.
What do we do? The Brigades have a number of roles to play (look here). We fight fires, attend motor vehicle accidents, run fire awareness courses and help out with local community activities. We also provide support to areas outside the district when called upon.
It takes lots of different skills to keep the Brigade working at its peak. We have Field Officers who put in a lot of time as part of their role in acquiring and maintaining equipment, preparing training for the Brigade and the Community, and making sure the day to day operation of the brigade runs smoothly. We are all volunteers, and do not get paid for the time we put in to the Brigade.
We also owe a huge vote of thanks to the family members of our fire fighters who support the ongoing activities of the Brigade and give up time with their partner, child, parent… We also thank the employers who release people from work to respond to emergencies.
Interested in Joining? If you wish to join the Brigade please contact the Captain or a Deputy Captain, (phone numbers are in the Stoney Creek Gazette) or come to a meeting or training session at the Community Hall.
