Ryan’s IGA have generously donated more than $1200 to Buninyong Fire Brigade through their Community Chest Fund.

Buninyong Fire Brigade purchased CFA coats which assist them greatly during the cold and wet season which is upon us. By keeping the members dry, the brigade is able to respond and suppress incidents more efficiently.

Buninyong Fire Brigade is extremely appreciative of Ryan’s IGA’s generosity towards the brigade. "With the winter months now settling in, our new wet weather coats have now been purchased and put into our vehicles for use on those increasingly cold and rainy days. Thanks to our local Ryan’s IGA who generously donated the funds to support this project. It is much appreciated and goes a long way in helping us keep our volunteers and in turn the community safe during winter." - Marc Cannan, Captain

Buninyong Fire Brigade have been receiving annual donations from Ryan’s IGA, allowing them to purchase equipment and clothing in order to benefit the community through operational response. In the past the brigade has purchased a variety of equipment to improve their performance when protecting the community.

Buninyong Fire Brigade is run by volunteers who attend more than 100 incidents per year and are community minded.
