The garden features a large commemorative rock that holds plaques for the 35 past members who served in the brigade since it was formed in 1944.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Emergency Services Peter Ryan visited the station last Sunday to officially dedicate the memorial as well as take a tour of the brigade’s renovated station, which includes a new Divisional Command Point as well as a kitchen.
Captain Mick Dorling said the brigade was honoured to have the minister visit on such a special occasion.
“It was great to have the minister here to help us acknowledge the memories and hard work of the men and women of the Fish Creek & District Fire Brigade.”
“He took a tour through our new facilities, such as the new Divisional Command Point, which will bring local command and control closer to the fire ground with state-of-the-art technology.
“We also used the opportunity to acknowledge and present some service awards to our auxiliary members who have done an outstanding job fundraising for the memorial as well as renovations to the station,” Mick said.
The memorial, located at the back of the fire station, was funded by brigade fundraising activities and was built by volunteer members.
