Toolangi Rural Fire Brigade is a volunteer brigade under the control of the country fire authority with the primary purpose of protecting the community from fires and other emergency situations.
The brigade was established following the 1939 fires when a member of one of our pioneering familes died trying to fight the fires. The brigade started with nothing but knap sacks and rake hoes. It took 10 years before we attained a Willeys Jeep, followed by an old Austin. We now have 3 vehicles, a brigade owned 4x4 Slip-on, a brigade owned dual cab 2,000 litre tanker, and a CFA owned Isuza 4x4 3,000 litre tanker. To house these 3 vehicles we have a new 3 bay station station built in 2014.
We have approximately 60 members with a very active junior brigade.
