nerrigundah station development

In order to provide a more effective service the Rural Fire Service and Nerrigundah Brigade have commenced planning to extend the existing Brigade Station and Neighbourhood Safer Place (NSP) to the rear.  This will enable separation of the NSP from the operational area of the station, provide some amenities for volunteer firefighters and make for more effective operations when the station is used as a staging area for large scale fires.

HISTORY
June 2014
Nerrigundah Brigade take delivery of new Toyota "Landcruiser Category 9 Striker", replacing a 1985 model Landcruiser wooden tray ute.

June 2013
Nerrigundah Fire Shed declared a Neighbourhood Safer Place (NSP) in line with the RFS Service Standard for NSP's.

January 2013
A meeting held on January 16th, 2013 kicked off Nerrigundah's Community Protection Planning process - an initiative happening across NSW following recommendations from the Victorian Royal Commission Inquiry into the 2009 "Black Saturday" fires.

September 2012
Internet access provided at the fireshed via satellite NBN (National Broadband Network) link.  Laptop users can connect wirelessly.  Our thanks to Narooma Golf Club who provided funding for the installation and ongoing data plans as part of the ClubGrants NSW Grant Scheme.

August 2012
Nerrigundah Brigade Members Col, Trevor, Steve, Ron, Phil, Margaret and Vereena (on behalf of the Late Les Gilbert) received Service Medals from RFS Chief Superintendent Ray Hall at the Tilba Station Opening.

August 2010
Nerrigundah RFB Website published.  The site has been designed as a portal for access to relevant information for both brigade members and the local community.  Whilst the format of this page will remain simple to facilitate easy access for all, links to information will increase and suggestions for helpful links are welcome.  We thank the Rural Fire Service Association for hosting the site.

July 2010
Additional 20,000 litre tank installed at the fireshed which now brings our water storage capacity to 40,000 litres.  With a bore capable of re-filling the tanks at about 3,600 litres per hour we should now be able to provide water to visiting tankers in a major fire situation.  Our thanks to Cadgee Quarry Concrete and Narooma UnitingCare Drop-in Centre for their assistance with this project.

October 2009
Nerrigundah Brigade was successful in gaining a grant to enable the purchase of a defibrillator, trolley and refrigerator from The Department of Families, Housing, Community Service and Indigenous Affairs.

July 2009
Nerrigundah Brigade was successful in securing a grant from NRMA for the purchase of a backup power supply that will guarantee maintaining water access from it's bore in times of power outage.

October 2005
Bore sunk and tank located next to the fire shed with funding provided by the Rural Fire Service Association and Eurobodalla Shire Council.

June 2004
Electricity connected to the fireshed (originally requested in 1979).  Our thanks to Country Energy (now Origin) for providing the connection and service pole at zero cost.

June 1981
Brigade renamed to Nerrigundah Bush Fire Brigade.

August 1979
Eurobodalla and Nerrigundah brigades combined again to become Nerrigundah Eurobodalla Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade.

February 1963
Brigades separated and our local brigade became known as Nerrigundah Bush Fire Brigade.  The split enabled the brigades to become better equipped including having a Landrover each.

October 1962
Eurobodalla/Nerrigundah Bush Fire Brigade established.  At this time the combined brigade had a trailer located at both Eurobodalla and Nerrigundah but the 2 areas shared a Landrover between them.  Scan of original Brigade Formation Minutes here...
