This section of our web site is a source of information for Brigade members and includes important dates, events and brigade news.

It will be regularly updated with information, activities and dates & times.

Of course – seeing you at the Shed on Wednesday nights is always a great opportunity to catch up.



Following are proposed training and maintenance dates. These have been set and are organised by Brett and Mark.  Please note – activity dates and times can change. Any updates will be posted and advised by email.  All training activity commences at 6.30 pm, unless otherwise stated. Maintenance dates commence at 7.30pm.

Due to the uncertain conditions leading up to the 2018/19 bush fire season all members are asked to be on alert at all times. The RFS brought forward the bush fire danger period  to 1 September. We are sure you are only too aware of the conditions here in Canyonleigh at the moment. Training and familiarity of our equipment and your brigade members is a valuable asset.  Following is our proposed training schedule for the next several months, however, if you feel that you would like extra time or more training and familiarity opportunities, speak with Mark, Brett , Peter or Kellie.  Lindsay is managing maintenance activities on the first Wednesday night of each month from Jan - May 2019.
