Welcome to Cust Volunteer Fire Brigade's website.
Just as we enthusiastically adopt new technology to fight fires it is important in this increasingly digital age that we have the best means to communicate quickly with everyone in our “patch". Our aim is to keep you fully informed about the activities of the Brigade, topical fire safety matters and other events such as restricted and closed fire seasons.
The Brigade is entirely manned by volunteer men and women from your community. They come from ordinary everyday backgrounds, but they are extraordinarily dedicated to ensure that we live in the safest community possible. They are all highly trained and at a moments notice prepared to drop whatever they are doing to attend an emergency somewhere nearby, or in the wider North Canterbury area. Whilst our turnout area is largely rural, it has three schools, a very large forest, major arterial roads and approximately 3000 permanent residents. Many people commute through our area daily, to work in Rangiora and Christchurch, this is our patch.
Please pop back regularly to see what the Brigade has been up to, to find out about interesting things that will help ensure the safety of you and your family,
We sincerely hope that you find this website useful and welcome any feedback.
CFO Peter Clements
