Scotland Island Rural Fire Brigade
A Message to Scotland Island Residents From the Fire Brigade.

The Scotland Island Fire Brigade has been an active part of the Island Community for more than 50 years.

It is a volunteer organisation that provides emergency services to offshore residents. No one in the brigade is paid. Members offer their services for free.

Over the last 12 months the Brigade has turned out for 30 emergency calls - 10 Storm Damage calls  (trees down etc.) - 2 Fire calls -3 boat fires and 11 Ambulance calls. This is more than a call a week!

Our active membership is very small and we desperately need more members.

  • SOCIAL MEMBERS - Members who help run functions like the Winter Dinners and other social functions
  • COMMUNITY FIRE GUARD MEMBERS - Members who get trained to deal with local fire incidents
  • ACTIVE MEMBERS - Full members who can respond to fire calls and boat calls
  • COMMUNITY FIRST RESPONDERS - Ambulance trained members
You don't have to be young and fit to become part of the Fire Brigade. The Brigade desperately needs members who are retired or work on the island during the day.

What should you do if you want to join up as a social or active member?
  • Pick up a membership form from the station and fill it out
  •  Show 100 points of Identification to (this must be signed off on your application form - Ian White, Graeme Richmond, Tim Byrnes or John Marshall can witness)
  • Turn up for training and functions
  • Pay a $10 membership fee
(All probational members have to be approved by the brigade and have to pass a security check. Compulsory training has to be completed for active membership.)
