Hazelbrook Rural Fire Brigade is part of the central sector of the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service, being responsible for approximately 100 square kilometres of mostly National Park to the north and south of the Hazelbrook village.
The urban interface, where bushland, scrub and grasslands adjoin residential areas is about 26 kilometres, with some 1,200 of Hazelbrook’s 2,000 properties in the interface.
Brigade membership fluctuates between 50 to 80 members. Currently, there are about 50 active firefighters. The Brigade is primarily set up for bush fire protection of the villages. As Hazelbrook is an urban fringe area and within a national park, we are also trained for cooperative activities with all other emergency services. For example, bush search and rescue, urban fire fighting and incident response, storm damage or any civil emergency.
The Brigade is located on the southern side of the Great Western Highway in Terrace Falls Road. The Brigade operates one Category 1 tanker, one Category 7 tanker and a personnel carrier.
The Brigade meets twice a week for training and equipment maintenance – Wednesday nights at 7:30pm and Saturdays from 1pm.
We also hold a monthly general meeting on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm so that the executive and membership can carryout the administrative business of the brigade.
