After a long absence Wandong fire brigade has reintroduced a Junior fire brigade.

By Tracey Mastropavlos

Reestablished in September 2016, the 11 - 15 year old girls and boys are learning skills in all areas of firefighting which they demonstrated at their presentation night on Monday 27 March. 

The Juniors have been learning basic firefighting skills including hose bowling, hose coupling, branch operation and pump operation as well as operating safely, teamwork and leadership. 

Their presentation culminated in a simulated bin fire and a five-person fog attack in front of family, friends and brigade members.

The skills and teamwork were impressive and a credit to the Juniors, Junior leaders and their helpers, giving the brigade a bright future.
