Drill Nights are on 2nd & 4th Tuesday of each month at out Station which is situated on the cnr Monaro & Kyemba Sts, Merimbula

NSW Fire Brigades don't just put out fires.

The Merimbula Fire Brigade also looks after:
  • Land & Road Rescue from 6 kilometeres south of Pambula to Wolumla in the North or whereever the police request;
  • Clean-up of hazardous materials;
  • Fire Protection of Merimbula;
  • Fire Prevention;
Merimbula Fire station has 15 retained fire fighters who are on 24 hour call. They have attended just about every major incident in the Bega Valley over the last 10 years.

The Merimbula Fire Brigade attends approximately 80 to 90 calls a year. The break down of these calls are:
  • Structure & Vehicle fires
  • Scrub Fires
  • Automatic Fire Alarms
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents (Fire Protection & Rescue)
  • Hazardous materials incidents
  • Rescuing cats out of trees ( usually very ungrateful little buggers too!)
  • False Alarms

We also Assist Merimbula and Pambula Rural Fire Services as required

Merimbula's NSW Fire Brigades Fire Fighters also are very active within our community with regular displays and open days, often with equipment brought from Sydney. We attend the local primary Schools and PreSchools, teaching the message about fire safety in the home, e.g. Get Downlow & Go Go, Stop Drop & Roll activities. This is great fun for the kids and is very successful in preventing fires by children.

NSW Fire Brigades are a most important part of our community - and one we sometimes take for granted.
