The Manly Volunteer Fire Brigade plays a major role in providing an emergency response to the Whangaparaoa community.
We have men and women from many walks of life who are volunteer Firefighters. Our volunteers include self-employed, mothers at home, shift workers, people looking for work, tradespeople and professionals.
Most of our Volunteer's employers find considerable advantages in having people with Fire Service training on their staff - people who can fight fires, give first aid, perform CPR and keep a cool head in an emergency.
Officer training also develops leadership and management skills and experience that can be useful in the workplace.
We have a compliment of 22 volunteers including Officers and Fire Fighters, male and female and all ages, servicing an area from Brightside Road (half way down the Peninsula), through Arkles and Stanmore Bays, Manly and through to the end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula (we sometimes even go to sea with the Coast Guard!).
We respond 24/7 to a wide range of calls (approximately 250 - 300 a year) that range from Medicals (approximately 60% of our calls), Animal Rescues, Boat Fires, Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVAs) and Structure Fires.
We are committed to helping the community and are passionate about what we do.
