Located located 35 minutes south of the Perth CBD and 10 minutes east of Rockingham, Baldivis Fire Station is a large volunteer manned station. We spoke to them about their station and the awesome social media videos they make!
The station maintains 6 appliances: an urban appliance, a rural appliance, a bulk water tanker, a incident control vehicle and two light tankers. The station has 54 active members and runs no set rosters or shifts for business as usual mobilising.
All out footage is obtained during operations using vehicle and personnel mounted GoPros and edited locally by a brigade member. Periodically we produce short videos showing what we all do – we all know how hard it is to explain what we have to deal with. As we build up enough new footage, we will look to release another short video.
