Bright CFA wants you

More men and women, 18-65, needed to help share the load

BRIGHT CFA wants you.The brigade has almost 40 volunteers on its books but just 10 make the essential Monday night training sessions, while work commitments reduces the weekday firefighting team to just a handful of people.

Brigade captain Paul Mansfield said they need committed volunteers, willing to train, and more women ahead of what many expect to be a severe fire season.

“If we sign up six new members it would be terrific, we just want to try to boost the numbers and spread the load a bit,” he said.

“Day time call outs are probably our biggest concern, we probably have five or six volunteers working in town but you only need to have three or four people out of town, for some unknown reason and we could be short.

“We have never been caught short, never failed to answer a call or get a truck out the door but if we could pick up a few that would be available during the day it would be great.”

Mr Mansfield said he only wants those who can commit to regular training.
