Enhance Response Capability

The Peechelba Rural Fire Brigade received the grant to help purchase a new chainsaw and safety equipment to enhance their response capability when attending fires and other emergency incidents in the region.


The Peechelba district community is remotely located within an area bound by national parks and the Ovens River and requires self-sufficiency in times of natural disaster. The fire brigade consists of approximately 25 active volunteer members who carry out its mission of 'saving lives and property'.
