Wallaroo Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade is a New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) unit. All members of the brigade are volunteers and train regularly to fight bush fires, grass fires, building and vehicle fires, as well as attending motor vehicle accidents.
We respond to a varying number of incidents per year in the brigade area, between Canberra and Murrumbateman, and also send crews and units to incidents within the zone, state or even interstate.
Wallaroo residents please note the brigade's Strategic Plan, a living document that will be updated as required. It shows how we are addressing our increasing membership, increasing population and our border with development in the ACT.
We are an active training brigade, with our regular training nights usually attended by over 20 people. Our members are a diverse group including farmers, tradespeople, public servants and lawyers. We always welcome new members and supporters. Recently we have welcomed 8 new members and considerably increased the number of female members in the brigade.
Volunteers are welcome. See our flier here 228kb.
