The role of the Ocean Grove Fire Brigade is to deliver CFA services to the community and to assist the community to minimise damage to life, property and the environment. These days the CFA does much more than fighting fires, and responds to a wide variety of incidents. These range from putting out wildfires to responding to urban emergencies such as house fires, motor vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents, and assisting the State Emergency service with storm and flood rescue. The CFA has also taken on an increasing role in community education and fire prevention.
The Ocean Grove Fire Brigade is an integrated brigade consisting of both career staff and volunteer members who work along side each other to deliver CFA services to the Bellarine Peninsula. The career staff are on station from 24 hours, 7 days a week and service the entire Bellarine Peninsula, supporting the Queesncliff, Drysdale, St Leonards, Portarlington, Leopold, Wallington, Mannerim and Barwon Heads brigades. The volunteer arm of the brigade covers weekends and nights also supporting Barwon Heads, Wallington and Queenscliff brigades. The Ocean Grove Brigade is also supported by Barwon Heads and Wallington Brigades for incidents in the Ocean Grove area.
The Brigade welcomes and is thankful for the fantastic support of the Ocean Grove Community and local businesses. Funds raised by the brigade are fed back into the community of Ocean Grove through the purchase of new equipment and the maintenance of existing equipment.
