Captain Jamie Duffy said people of all ages were welcome to attend the open day – the first time the brigade had open its station doors to the public.

“We have been in our new station for a couple of years now but it’s the first time we’ve been able to open to the public due to COVID and other logistics,” he said.

“But we’re very keen to show off our new station and let people wander through.

“There will be plenty of brigade members in attendance to answer questions and provide people with information about our trucks, our equipment, and everything we do as a brigade.”

Mr Duffy said it would also be an opportunity for people interested in joining the brigade to attend and check out their facilities.

“We are actively recruiting for more members to join us – we have an recruitment night on Tuesday, February 21 for people to come along and hear about the various roles people can do in a brigade,” he said.

“As well as being a fire fighter, there are also plenty of support and administration roles available to help the brigade function.

The recruit information night starts at 7pm on at the Broadford Fire Station.
