COUNTRY FIRE AUTHORITY KORUMBURRA BRIGADE

Members Statement

Danny O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (09:42): The very next day saw the Korumburra CFA celebrating 125 years since its formation. There were some excellent historical displays highlighting the many fires and emergencies the brigade has attended. Special guests and some words of wisdom from brigade life members made for a memorable day. The Korumburra fire brigade, though, is still waiting for the best birthday present it could hope for: funding from the state government for a new fire station. Along with Foster and Mirboo North, it has long been at the top of the infrastructure needs for district 9, but sadly these crucial volunteer-run facilities have been overlooked time and time again by the Labor government. It is time they got their fair share.
