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 Western Australia. They have a crew of 24, made up of officers, active firefighters, reserve, support and junior members. They are trained up in Road Crash Rescue, offensive strucutral firefighting, bushfires and HAZMAT.
We caught a photo of their engine bay on our facebook page and had to see more.
The captain, Jason, ducked down to the station and snapped these great photos for us. You can see there is a lot of pride, history and war stories that live within. You’ve never had engine bay floor envy until you see these…
If you’re interested in joining, they have a business meeting on the first Monday of the month starting at 20:00 and train on the first and third Monday, starting at 19:30.
I founded Flashover to promote Australian Firefighting. I’ve been a volunteer and a paid firefighter but now I spend my time chasing up leads, promoting good mental health and making the occasional Grumpy Firecom comic!
