Our equipment & facilities

The Canyonleigh Bush Fire Brigade operates two fire trucks: Cat 1 and Cat 7. These are housed in the brigade’s fire shed which features a meeting/conference area, office, bathrooms, kitchen and general training areas internally and externally.

The brigade members (with assistance from the community) installed three over-head rapid-fill stations in its shed. This allows for trucks to quickly and efficiently refill with water without having to attach any drafting hoses or pump operation.

The brigade, with the assistance of federal and state funding, also installed four large concrete tanks in strategically located areas of Canyonleigh as water sources in times of emergency.
