When a community needs help it turns to local emergency services.
Now, the Greerton Volunteer Fire Brigade is turning the tables and calling on the community for volunteers.

The brigade deal with a wide range of emergencies from fires, the carrying out of extractions and rescues and containing hazardous substance spills, to attending motor vehicle accidents.
Fire fighters also have an important community-focused role in educating people on the dangers of fire.
Recently, the Greerton Brigade held a kitchen fire demonstration at Selwyn Ridge School, where it showed students just how easily a kitchen fire can get out of hand.
The brigade is calling for new recruits to help them continue the service they provide for the community.
