Over 80 years of service to Warrandyte
Warrandyte CFA is a 100% volunteer run brigade, serving the community for over 80 years.
We attend more than 200 calls for assistance each year including house, grass & bush fires as well as car accidents and other emergency events. We have 50+ members providing an emergency service 24-hours a day, 365 days of the year, to our community.
Warrandyte CFA is located at the base of the Yarra Valley, 35 kilometres northeast of Melbourne. Sitting on the fringe of both city and country, Warrandyte is uniquely positioned in one of the most beautiful bush environments in Victoria. The very nature of our environs means Warrandyte and its surrounding suburbs, face a very real threat of bushfire.
Our brigade remains proactive in protecting our community and arming our residents with the most up-to-date information available.
Warrandyte Fire Brigade began its existence as the Warrandyte Bush Fire Brigade in 1938.
Warrandyte then became a part of the CFA on 31 October, 1945.
The Warrandyte CFA has over 50 members. Many operational fire fighters, but we also have volunteers who offer support services.
Warrandyte is part of the green wedge and our surrounding bush environment lends Warrandyte to being highly susceptible to bushfire incidents. Our brigade is respectful of these unique environments and continues to promote community education for bushfire preparedness.
Warrandyte CFA service boundaries include the suburbs of Warrandyte, Donvale, East Doncaaster & Templestowe.
