Muogamarra celebrates 60 years protecting the community
Published Date: 13 Aug 2011
The hard work and dedication of volunteer firefighters in the Hornsby / Ku-ring-gai district has been officially recognised during a ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of the Muogamarra Rural Fire Brigade.
NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Assistant Commissioner Keith Harrap said the Mougamarra Rural Fire Brigade not only provided valuable assistance to the local community but also to residents across NSW and interstate.
"The Brigade has assisted with many emergencies both throughout the local area and also further a field when the call for assistance has gone out.
"The value to the community of the Brigade's work in the areas of fire safety and prevention cannot be over-estimated," he said.
Assistant Commissioner Harrap said that as well as providing a fire response, the Brigade was actively involved in the local community through its fire safety and education work.
"The Muogamarra Rural Fire Brigade was formed back in 1951 and the dedicated volunteers are still delivering important community education and fire awareness, as well as providing that front line emergency response.
"Today, the Muogamarra Rural Fire Brigade is a strong brigade with a proud history of helping people in the Hornsby / Ku-ring-gai area and beyond.
"Each day, NSW RFS members demonstrate their commitment to their community.
"These men and women are on hand to help others when they need it. I and the people of NSW are rightly proud, and grateful for their contribution," Assistant Commissioner Harrap said.
"Celebrating 60 years is an inspirational milestone for the Muogamarra Brigade and I wish the volunteers the very best for the next 60 years and beyond."
