Sunday 2 December 2012 marks 75 years to the day that the Phillip Island Fire Brigade was formed.

To help kick off the year of celebrations in style, the brigade has refurbished the mural that was on the side of the station. It pays homage to the members who have served the brigade with distinction over the past 75 years.

“We couldn’t be happier with the quality of the job” said Captain Rodney Beale. “It’s a great way to kick of a weekend of celebrations.”

The celebrations include a lunch on Sunday to celebrate the milestone in the brigade's history and to publically recognise the efforts of our members with the awarding of service awards and honorary life memberships to a couple of very worthy members.

“The members are especially excited to have Chief Officer Euan Ferguson attend the lunch on Sunday,” commented Captain Beale. “We have been holding fire awareness stalls for the past two weeks to help educate our community and these celebrations will cap off a busy month for the Brigade.”
