Mt Barker VFRS WA

Mt Barker VFRS in Western Australia

Not many stations out there can show off timber floors in their engine bay! Have a look at the great station that Mt Barker VFRS runs over in WA. It was built in the 60’s and shows off a real sense of pride in what they do.

Newman VFRS

Station Spotlight: Newman Volunteer Fire & Rescue

We caught up with the crew from Newman VFRS in Western Australia and chewed the fat about their stations, what appliances they run and what a typical year is like for the crew over in WA. There’s also some great photography coming out of these guys, so well done!

Pine Creek Fire Station

Take a look in Pine Creek Fire Station N.T

Located around 90 kilometers from Katherine in the Northern Territory, Pine Creek Fire Station operates within the Pine Creek fire district, a “2 mile radius” from the center of Pine Creek – which happens to be the local police station. 

What a great example of locals pitching in to help their community. With their closest support coming from nearly an hour away, these guys do it to protect their patch. Well done!
