PROTECTING OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 1941
WHAT WE DO
EFB firefighters are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, responding to many emergencies across the Emerald and surrounding area. While our main responsibility is wildfire and structural fire suppression, we respond to hazardous material spills, gas leaks, motor vehicle accidents and other community service requests.
The brigade runs many fire safety education initiatives throughout the year including Bushfire Information Sessions and FireSafe Kids Programs. We believe early education is vital for both young children when learning about the dangers associated with fire and for adults in understanding the risks of living in fire prone areas.
Emerald Fire Brigade was established on the 14th March 1941. Our response area covers approximately 35 square kilometers and we attend around 150 incidents per year.
Our members come from all walks of life but all share one common interest, protecting the community they live in and helping those in need.
