Welcome to the Ocean Grove Fire Brigade

 

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.

This web site provides a host of information regarding the Brigade and it's commitment to the Ocean Grove and Bellarine Peninsula communities.

For the past 18 months, the Ocean Grove Fire Station has had career staff on day shift between the hours of 7:45am and 6:15pm (Mon-Fri), with Volunteers continuing to respond as normal.

We are delighted to announce that as of this Friday 17th October, 24 hour career staff manning will commence at the station. This means  that there will be career staff on shift 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The staff will continue to service the entire Bellarine Peninsular in support of volunteers from Ocean Grove, Queenscliff, Barwon Heads, Drysdale, Portarlington, St Leonards, Mannerim, Wallington and Leopold. The commencement of 24x7 manning also means there will be a 90 second response by the staff 24 hours a day to any call on the Bellarine. Ocean Grove volunteers will continue to respond as normal as we all work as one team to service the Ocean Grove and Bellarine communities.

Congratulations to our new recruits who passed their Minimum Skills assessment. Each of the recruits has been issued with their new pagers and once their Personal Protective Clothing arrives will be able to start turning out with the Brigade. 

The additional members means a better response to incidents in Ocean Grove and surrounding towns, and we warmly welcome the recruits on board.
