Closeburn Rural Fire Brigade is a volunteer unit
operating under the auspices of Queensland Fire & Rescue.
The Rural Fire Service is an integral part of Queensland Fire and Rescue Service,
with a proud history spanning over 60 years. The Rural Fire Service provides fire
management for rural and semi-rural communities (outside urban fire levy areas) across
approximately 93% of the area ofthe State. Services include fire mitigation, prescribed
burning, volunteer training, community awareness and education.
Volunteers are not paid.
Our Members come from all walks of life & their day to day jobs are as varied as
their ages, but the one thing they all have in common is a desire to serve & protect
their local area.
Our aim, like that of other Rural Fire Brigades is to provide protection of life
and property through:
reducing the risk of wildfire;
managing the use of fire for hazard reduction or land management purposes;
managing any unwanted fire.
Closeburn Rural Fire Brigade meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm & Training
is every other Tuesday.
