Shelly Beach Fire Brigade is fundraising for vital equipment!

Shelly Beach Volunteer Rural Fire Force was first setup by the South Head community back in 1977 and is now a part of Fire and Emergency NZ.
Over the years SBVRFF has adapted to meet the needs of this unique community. The SBVRFF covers the whole of the South Head/Kaipara Peninsula, and co-responds to other emergencies in the Nor-West region.
We are usually the first to arrive at local emergencies, and these call outs include: Medical Emergencies, Rescues, Motor Vehicle Accidents, Natural Disasters, Structural Fires and Wild Fires.
We also have crew who have travelled further afield participating in the Fire Campaigns in Australia, the US and Canada and Nationally crew have been deployed to Christchurch in the Search and Rescue operation immediately following the Earthquakes.
Crew involved in these areas undergo specialised training and all of our crew members are well trained, gaining NZQA and Fire and Emergency New Zealand industry specific qualifications.
Currently we are fundraising to make our service even more efficient. We are looking to purchase two new defibrillators to provide the community on the South Head Peninsular with greater coverage and quicker response time in the event of a cardiac emergency.
We already have defibrillators on both of our appliances at the Shelly Beach Fire Station and one with our medical co-responders in Tupare; we are looking to expand this by having defibrillators available to our medical co-responders at Wilson Road and another one further north along South Head Road.
We would greatly appreciate any help you can give by way of donation to purchase the equipment needed to respond quickly to life threatening cardiac emergencies.
