Mudgeeraba RFB trains every Tuesday night from 1900 (7 pm) most often at our station @ 415 Mudgeeraba Springbrook Rd, Mudgeeraba except for the bi-monthly meeting nights. Feel free to drop in and say hello. If you are interested in joining us, we will give you the RFS Application forms which you must fill out and send into the regional head office for a Police check and other administration purposes. Once you have a letter of acceptance from Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, you are able to commence training with us.
Membership of the Rural Fire Brigade is open to all people at least sixteen years of age and of good character. We are always looking for more members and anyone who lives within a reasonable distance of our station on Mudgeeraba Springbrook Rd are welcome to join.
New members are welcome to join at any time of the year. Membership is probationary for three months and is then ratified by the brigade at a general meeting where you will be presented with your Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) – overalls, helmet, goggles and gloves.
All new members undergo training and mentoring with one of the senior firefighters as well as starting their Fire Fighter Minimum Skills (FMS) qualification. In our brigade, all members must have completed FMS before they can enter an active fireground. During their training all members do attend burns to learn hands on skills on a live controlled fire. Please have a look at the calendar for more details on training, news and events.
The following video is of a group training exercise and demonstrates the sort of training that is offered.
