Elingamite Glenfyne CFA brigade looks forward to brighter future

The future is looking brighter for a south-west CFA brigade after a community meeting drummed up more volunteer support.

The Elingamite Glenfyne Fire Brigade held the community meeting on Sunday after a dwindling membership was putting its future in doubt.

Captain Greg Free said it was no longer “all doom and gloom”, with the brigade signing up some new members.

“We got a bit of interest,” he said.

The brigade’s membership had shrunk to about six active members.

Member Nigel McConnell said there was still work to do.

“It was great to have a few new people sign up and we are looking forward to renewed invigoration brought by their participation,” he said.

“We are still needing more people to get involved in either an active or non-active roles.”

Mr McConnell encouraged people interested to contact brigade support officer Betty Robilliard on 5595 1395.
