Turkey Beach new hose reel in use

Monday, 16 September 2013
Pat Noye, Secretary, Turkey Beach Rural Fire Brigade


This happy snap was taken just before leaving Turkey Beach for a regional hazard reduction burn at Round Hill/ Deepwater National Park. Our Brigade was very fortunate to be the recipient of a grant from RFBAQ for the purchase of an electric reel for our appliance, Turkey Beach 51.

The installation of the reel has made life much easier for our fire-fighters, resulting in less fatigue on the fire ground and much quicker movement. One press of a button and the hose automatically rewinds. No more huffing and puffing.

Our Brigade prides itself in keeping our Turkey Beach area and assisting other neighbouring areas to be as fire free as Mother Nature allows.

Turkey Beach Rural Fire Brigade is most grateful to the Rural Fire Brigades Association Queensland for making these grants available to brigades and for the purchase of such items.
