This month see’s the South Coogee Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade complete 40 years of service to the local, regional and state communities.
A dedicated group of Cockburn residents decided to form the Brigade when concerned the efforts to fight fire with wet towels, blankets and buckets of water were no longer enough. The Brigade began with the acquisition of an ex-fire unit from the Jandakot Brigade, which had been establish some 5 years before, which was followed by the commissioning of a small new station.
The brigade has gone through many changes, the most recent of all being the move to the purpose built Emergency Services Facility in Cockburn. The move reflects both the commitment by local and federal government as well as the members of the brigade to support Volunteer Emergency Services in our local area. South Coogee look forward to many more years protecting and serving our communities, both here in Cockburn, the the wider Perth metro area and across the State of Western Australia as we are required.
