Eltham Fire Brigade
The Eltham Fire Brigade has been serving the local community of Eltham since 1926. The brigade is staffed full time by qualified Fire Officers and Fire Fighters, and community volunteers who are trained in a variety of competencies, enabling them to take part in all urban and rural fire fighting tasks.
The brigade focusses not only on direct firefighting operations, but takes an active role in community fire prevention including community education, school fire safety programs, involvement in community activities such as the Nillumbik Rotary Town Festival and the CFA Open Day.
Prior to summer each year, the brigade runs a series of Fire Ready Victoria throughout the local area, providing information on the upcoming fire season and relevant safety messages.
