Volunteering

The Rural Fire Service is made up of volunteers from all walks of life - men and women from different cultural backgrounds, age groups and professions.

Rural fire brigades are a reflection of every local community.

Becoming a volunteer firefighter is easier than most people think. Brigades offer training ranging from bush firefighting, village firefighting and first aid to breathing apparatus operation.

We don’t just offer firefighting roles, we have a multitude of areas that require volunteers. Communications, catering, logistics, planning and aviation support are critical – there is a job for nearly everyone in the RFS.

We rely heavily on the support of people from all backgrounds and cultures in our community. The people that make up our Service are as different as the society that we protect.

The Lavington Rural Fire Brigade is always looking for new members. Generally we take memberships from people living in the Albury and surrounding areas.

If you are interested in joining the brigade, come and see us on a training night or maintenance morning (check calendar for details) or call our Captain on 0427 255 532. Any person who is under the age of 16 years but over 12 years of age, can be accepted by the Brigade as a junior member, and need to have written consent of their parent/guardian to participate in Brigade activities. Junior member cannot attend fires.

We are located at 629 Krautz Street, Lavington. See 'About Us' for more details.
