Mudgeeraba RFB trains every Tuesday night from 1900hrs (7 pm) most often at our station @ 415 Mudgeeraba Springbrook Rd, Mudgeeraba. Feel free to drop in and say hello.
If you are interested in joining us, we will take your details and contact you when we have a member intake in early 2019.
Once you join, we will provide you with Rural Fire Service membership application forms which you must fill out. You can join us for limited training to ensure that you wish to be part of our Brigade. We then vote whether to accept you as a member (after 4 – 6 weeks) and you send the paperwork to the regional office for a Police check and other administration purposes. Once you have a letter of acceptance from Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, you are a full member of the Brigade. You will then be presented with your Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) – overalls, helmet, goggles and gloves.
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 people to join us at our intake time and anyone who lives within a reasonable distance of our station on Mudgeeraba Springbrook Rd are welcome to join.
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.
