MAIDEN Gully’s CFA brigade is calling for more volunteers and will open its doors at an information evening on Monday night.

The brigade is hoping for some new faces to join its dedicated team at the Beckhams Lane fire
station.

Brigade treasurer Andrew Howlett says Maiden Gully has seen several volunteers move away in recent years, raising the need to put the call out for more members.

“We like to maintain our firefighting strength at 30, so we are now filling some vacancies,” he said.

The brigade is looking for both males and females over the age of 16 and living in the Maiden Gully area.

Training and protective clothing are provided and all that is needed is a commitment of time.

Mr Howlett says in the CFA you do more than train and fight fires – you can be involved with administration, maintenance, community education and fundraising.

“To find out how you can get involved, a special information evening will take place on this coming Monday, starting at 7.30pm at the Maiden Gully Fire Station on Beckhams Road,” he said.
