Rural Fire Brigades are often more than just an emergency service. They can also be a vital community service, provide a community meeting point or offer assistance with non-emergency roles.
For this reason, many people choose to donate to their local Rural Fire Brigade.
Many Rural Fire Brigades conduct fundraising activities at community events, through coin collections or BBQs. These proceeds go directly to assisting the brigade.
We are greatly honoured by the generosity of our community through the support we receive. Sussex Inlet RFB utilises funds raised in a variety of ways, that include, day-to-day expenses of the brigade and fire fighting equipment purchases that enhance our service to the community.
