Woodend Operational Support

The Woodend Operational Support Unit currently has 4 members with a further 2 moving to be firefighters along with our 27 other firefighters. The Brigade responds to approximately 170 calls a year. Our calls range from MVC's, First Responder Calls, Property and Structure Fires and Scrub/Forest Fires. The Operational Support vehicles are a 4WD Toyota Hilux and a Mitsubishi Canter which carries traffic management equipment, lighting, a generator, First Aid trauma kit and other necessary tools and gear. We attend many MVC's as we are on a State Highway with high volume traffic.
As well as the above vehicles, Operational Support sometimes ride in the Brigade's Appliance (Woodend 777) on occasions for medical and other calls. As well as responding to the calls listed above, the Operational Support members support the Brigade in community events, fire safety, smoke alarms and house checks.
