Kurrajong Rural Fire Brigade's history
available to read here (click on link below)
in PDF format. The
booklet was issued in
celebration of what we believed at the time to
our 60th year in service. However, it is with
regret that due to
missing/lost brigade and
council records etc. that some information had
not been collated or verified. Accuracy of
information is easily lost in
older the document, the less information is
recorded but rather committed to memory.
We now know that the Brigade was formed through a series of meetings held in Kurrajong during the winter and spring of 1939 at the instigation of the local Police which culminated with official recognition and establishment by Colo Shire Council on 15th December 1939.
